Nae Pasaran plus director Q&A

Felipe Bustos Sierra

We’re delighted to bring back our Scottish Encounters programme with another chance to see Felipe Bustos Sierra’s documentary Nae Pasaran. As September marks the 45th anniversary of the Chilean Coup, this special screening of Nae Pasaran will be followed by a Q&A discussion with director Felipe Bustos Sierra and special guests. 

In 1974, a group of workers at the Rolls Royce factory in East Kilbride showed their support for the people of Chile by refusing to carry out the vital repairs of engines for Hawker Hunter planes, which had been used during the brutal military coup in September 1973. The boycott endured for four years but the Scottish workers never knew what impact they had; it was a matter of conscience and an act of solidarity. Bustos Sierra – himself the Scotland-based son of a Chilean exile – reunites inspirational figures Bob Fulton, Robert Somerville, Stuart Barrie and John Keenan to hear their story. With unprecedented access, Nae Pasaran also ventures much further to detail the horrors of the Pinochet years, meet survivors of the period and hears the Chilean side of the story.
