Mother, Country + Q&A 18

Pablo Navarrete, Chile, UK, 2024, 91m.

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.


The screening will be followed by a live Q&A with director Pablo Navarrete, his mother, Cristina Godoy-Navarrete, and father, Roberto Navarrete, hosted by journalist Matt Kennard, head of investigations at Declassified UK. Matt has previously written for the New Statesman, The Guardian, the Financial Times, openDemocracy, and The Intercept.


Matt's new book The Racket will be available to buy at the cinema.
