- Batalla de Chile la lucha de un pueblo sin armas = The battle of Chile : the struggle of an unarmed people /
- La batalla de Chile : "On September 11, 1973, President Salvador Allende's democratically-elected Chilean government was overthrown in a bloody coup by General Augusto Pinochet's army. Patricio Guzmán and five colleagues had been filming the political developments in Chile throughout the nine months leading up to that day. The bombing of the Presidential Palace, during which Allende died, would now become the ending for Guzmán's seminal documentary ... [a] chronicle of that country's open and peaceful socialist revolution, and of the violent counter-revolution against it."--Container. Chile, obstinate memory: "Long banned in Chile after Pinochet's coup, only in 1997 could Guzmán return to show The Battle of Chile there for the first time. [This film] is the ... record of that homecoming," and acts as a conclusion to the documentary. -- From container.

Rich in excerpts from vérité classics ... this is the first film to capture all the excitement of a revolution that changed movie-making forever"--Container. Includes commentary by filmmakers, and explores vérité's influence in everything from TV news to music videos to Webcams.

The filmmaker patiently waited some miles from the North Pole, on Ellesmere island, to film the inevitable battle between two muskoxen in quest of the same territory. Learn of the life cycle of this legendary beast, the weaning of calves, their games, the mock battles, the rut.
