Exhibition “Carmen Castillo. A Case of Chilean Exile”


The exhibition, curated by the journalist and cinema critic Imma Merino, is an exploration of the artistic life and activity of Carmen Castillo.


During the Chilean dictatorship she was an active member of MIR (Movimiento de Izquierda Revolucionaria), a resistance group that fought clandestinely against the dictatorship. In 1974, after a strong repressive attack by the dictatorship, the result of a betrayal that ended the life of her companion and leader of the resistance group, Miguel Enríquez, she was able to go into exile in Paris.


Carmen Castillo has worked making documentaries for television and also documentaries on the recovery of historical memory, such as La flaca Alejandra (1994), which tells of the meeting of an informer with one of the victims of the accusation, made during Pinochet’s dictatorship in Chile, and Calle Santa Fé (2007), a production about the personal experience of the director of Pinochet’s repression in 1974 and the memory of the defeated.
