Journey Into Exile

Tanja Hamilton's 2003 video about Antonio Coloma, a Chilean communist forced into exile by the 1973 coup, begins and ends with an eloquent and prophetic final speech from president Salvador Allende on the day he was ousted. The rest is of middling interest: revisiting Chile, Coloma locates the house where he hid in a cellar, encounters resentment from leftists who stayed behind, and meets with a former comrade who spied for the right wing but spared his life by not reporting him. Coloma's assertion that he never betrayed his principles cannot be evaluated, because we learn nothing of his three decades in Germany. In subtitled Spanish and German. 89 min.
