Chilean Refugees and Britain at 50: Chileans of the North screening and Q&A

3rd November @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm


Join us for an evening dedicated to the Chilean refugee story in Britain. There will be a screening of the 2023 documentary ‘Chileans of the North’, live music and a Q&A with the director. Also joining the evening will be Jose Cifuentes, who left Chile as a refugee and who settled in Swansea.

On 11th September 1973 a violent coup in Chile overthrew the democratically elected government of Salvador Allende. What followed was nearly 17 years of repression in which the dictatorship of August Pinochet transformed the country. More than 2000 Chilean exiles came to the UK, aided by a network that included the Chile Solidarity Campaign, Trade Unions and the World University Service.

Chileans of the North explores the story of the refugees who made a new home in South Yorkshire. The participants share what happened at the time of the coup and its aftermath, what it was like to start a new life in the UK, and how activism and solidarity brought a community together. Told through first-hand stories, archive material and music, it’s a story that spans two continents and 50 years.

In solidarity with all refugees
