Pablo Navarrete's parents were forced to leave Chile after a military coup on 11 September 1973. They arrived in the UK as political refugees after spending time in the Pinochet dictatorship’s torture centres. They didn’t know it then, but Britain would be where they would settle, have a family, and still live, nearly 50 years later.

Filmed over more than three years, Mother, Country is a deeply personal film that follows the director as he travels to Chile with his parents in 2020 to witness a people’s uprising and finally confront their past.

Content Guidance: Film contains discussions of sexual violence

Mother, Country will be followed by a post-screening Q&A with director Pablo Navarrete and his mother Cristina Godoy-Navarrete, who features in the film.

Screening in association with Alborada Films. Supported by Alborada.
