La aventura de Miguel Littín, clandestino en Chile
This book is not yet featured on Listopia. This is a short but fascinating true story of a film director from Chile, exiled after the Pinochet coup, who sneaks back into the country after 12 years in order to do a documentary about the state of the nation. Despite its factual nature, Flandestino Marquez narrates the book in a dramatic first person style and it is a distillation of an hour interview he did with the filmmaker.
Oddly, nowhere in the book is there mention of the name of the film that Littin produced from the thousand feet o This is a short but fascinating true story of a film director from Chile, exiled after the Pinochet coup, who sneaks back into the country after 12 years in order to do miguell documentary about the state of the nation. Oddly, nowhere in the book is there mention of the name of the film that Littin produced from the thousand feet of footage he and his 5 crews shot in Chile over the course of a month or so.
I looked it up on IMDB though and it’s called “Acta General de Chile” – it doesn’t look like there’s an english version, unfortunately. But, it can be seen on Google Video here: At any rate, the book is a great snapshot at what Pinochet’s regime did to Chile after just 12 years, and an empathetic look at the effect of exile on a creative and patriotic artist.

I’m reading up on Chile in advance of a residency in June, and as research, it’s good reading, and fast. It’s also interesting journalism, as Lcandestino taped 18 hours of interviews with Littin and then consolidated his words down into A very readable story of an exiled filmmaker sneaking around Pinochet’s Chile to record film for a documentary. It’s also interesting journalism, as Marques taped 18 hours of mivuel with Littin and then consolidated his words down into about a hundred pages.
To my friends traveling to Chile, I recommend the book as a pleasant introduction to the country. But save our pal Francisco Goldman’s preface until after you’ve read the book. In his discussion, which is a worthy and interesting read, he gives away the best parts of the book.
InSalvador Allende’s government collapsed under the weight of a military coup orchestrated by the U. Immediately on the heels of this coup, any litgin or perceived dissidence was violently repressed, leaving thousands of people dead, imprisoned or just gone without a trace, and the repression went on over the period of Pinochet’s reign.
Thousands more went into exile to escape this regime and were forbidden to recross the Chilean borders. In InSalvador Allende’s clwndestino collapsed under the weight of a military coup orchestrated by the U. The plan was actually hatched earlier, when he failed to find his name on any of the lists of exiles allowed to return published by the Chilean government.
He did however, find it on a list of 5, people not allowed to come back. He notes “I had lost the image of my country in a fog of nostalgia. The Chile I remembered no longer existed, and for a filmmaker there could be no surer way of rediscovering a lost country than by going back to it and filming it from the inside.
His total time in the country was about six weeks, during which time he and his three separately-assigned film crews assisted by Chilean crews who also belonged to the Popular Front: None of the crews knew about aventur of the others offering a sort of “hush-hush” aspect to this bookand they would actually be focusing on the Chilean people who continued to live under Pinochet’s dictatorship and how well or not the country had fared in the 12 years since the takeover.
Clandestine in Chile is very well written and absorbs the reader at the start. As noted, there are a few semi-heartstopping moments, but some of Littin’s experiences but at the same time are poignant; for example, when he “accidentally” finds himself at the home of his mother. Littin’s observations in offer a brief glimpse into how the old regime had not been forgotten in Chile some 12 years later, and the people who both from underground and publicly were doing what they could to fight back.
Frankly, I was a bit moved at how difficult and quite frankly even strange the whole process must have been for Littin, and how very odd he must have felt to be back in his native country to which he as of could never return. My only criticism of the book is that parts of it seemed to have taken on a bit of literary license and were a bit fluffy, especially during some of the conversations in which Littin was involved.
Yet on the whole, the coup, and the ensuing regime of Pinochet and his repression of dissenters are all topics of great personal interest, and the book offers another part of the human story for those who are also interested in this topic. I’d also love to see the resulting documentary, but as of yet have had no luck in even locating a copy. Para ver o post completo sobre este livro,visite: It’s a straight adventure story, and is a first person account of the adventures of Miguel Littin, an exiled Chilean film director.
Littin was a supporter of Allende, and was almost killed as a sympathizer when Agusto Pinochet became dictator after a coup d’etat. As someone else said, this book is “a scary, exhilarating and sometimes hilarious tale of bizarre coincidences, hairbreadth esc Clandestine in Chile: As someone else said, this book is “a scary, exhilarating and sometimes hilarious tale of bizarre coincidences, hairbreadth escapes and ludicrous foul-ups getting a shave and haircut in Concepcion, Littin discovers afterward that his meticulous disguise has been ruined.
His brashness is impressive: Augusto Pinochet’s private office. In the end he escapes by air, fantasizing that the dictator will soon be “dragging behind the ,foot donkey’s tail of film we had pinned on him. This is the story of Miguel Littin who was on Pinochet’s list of undesirables, but managed to sneak back into the country and manage three film crews to record a documentary “Alsino and the Condor” which won a Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film.
Gabriel Garcia Marquez gives amazing details of the character of the country during this time. He discusses what happened after the coup to Pablo Neruda’s house in Santiago. The house was sacked by Pinochet’s soldiers and they threw all This is the story of Miguel Littin who was on Pinochet’s list of undesirables, but managed to sneak back into the country and manage three film crews to record a documentary “Alsino and the Condor” which won a Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film.
The house was sacked by Pinochet’s soldiers and they threw all his books onto a bonfire in the garden. In order to film the house the Italian crew brought all their equipment knowing the carabineros would forbit them to take it in so they had some portable camera hidden in their clothes.
Neruda clandetino shortly after the raid. This book is a treasure aventhra excellent writing. I’ve always liked Garcia Clandestnio reportage works La sutileza con que Narra Marquez, te pierde. For this is a tale of a man seeking to reveal the horrors of living under the jackboot of a blood soaked regime but the narrative has a diary-like confessional nature with some acute observations about people and society in general.
Coupled with reminiscence of several near misses and other minor but stressful events that could’ve turned his and the crews’ lives upside down for good. What becomes clear as the book comes to an end is that chille is essentially a tale of a man who’s had several frightening close calls with the regime, but managed by luck and the goodwill of certain people in positions to help to escape the horrendous realities of the Pinochet’s regime meted out to perceived enemies and other vulnerable people living within Chile.
For the words needed to describe this experience, this reality of exile looking back pining for home is as profound as it is indescribable. He was forbidden of returning to Clahdestino he was one of the five thousand exiled chileans that were in the list of people that weren’t allow to enter their motherland so he got in with a false identity, and fake purposes.
With him went three separate camera crews, from different european countries, that didn’t know about each other’s existence. Besides that, he also used other camera crews from Chile, organized while he was there. He collected thirty two thousand and two hundread metres of film. Apart from a great adventure, spy-like, where he met with a lot of members from the resistence to the dictatorshipand the incredible avenura that this actually happened, this is also a nostalgic reencounter of a man and it’s homeland, whom he loves and from which is apart by force.
In each place he goes, mihuel is something about the recent story of Chile that is related to it. So this fills in a few gaps or just gigantic holes about the history of this formidable country.
Not only that, you get to know a bit of it’s culture. Above all, it is a comparison between what it was before Pinochet’s military coup and 12 years after it. The whole point of the movie clancestino to unmask the regime’s order and progress, in dee almost satirical way, showing what it really was: A unique and crazy story at the same time. Imagine returning to your country of birth while you’re a wanted person.
No longer welcome under your real name because of your political preference. This book is completely different from any book from Marquez that I’ve read, still very good! I’ve always wanted to, of course, because anyone who reads always has a pile of books and authors they will read one day, however, Marquez has always slipped out of my reach for some reason.
This book came to me by accident at the library when I was looking for something else; out slipped this thin little book from the shelf from between 2 large tomes on South American and Spanish Truth be told, I’ve never read Marquez before, not Years of Solitude, not Love in the Time of Cholera, nothing. This book came to me by accident at the library when I was looking for something else; out slipped this thin little book from the shelf from between 2 large tomes on South American and Spanish history.
I recognized the author right away and as a lover of film found the premise too enticing to now even remember what I went to the library for in the first place. But what did I think of the book? I’m not sure what to make of this story. The book is billed as non-fiction and since a film was made in Chile during the dictator Pinochet’s reign then there’s no denying the facts about it. What intrigues me is how Marquez assembled this book and how similar that engineering is to the crafting and editing of a film – in this case overfeet of a donkey’s tail to pin on Pinochet.
The book was made after nearly 18 hours of conversation between Marquez and Littin. Marquez then had to pare down all that conversation into 10 chapters about 12 pages each. That’s very little material left from an enormous trove of what Litten did talk about.
However, Littin too made the same decisions when making his film and cut down overfeet of film into a 4 hour TV film and then further down to 2 hours for the theatrical version.
Both works are documentaries and both are biased because, well, everything is biased. Anyone who tells you there is a state on non-bias is a liar. Littin, being a native Chilean and an exile made all his film editing decisions from that persona – a persona he can’t escape because we can never escape ourselves – even if we are forced to flee halfway around the globe.
Yet Littin, in making his film, had to take on the persona of a businessman from Uruguay, he had to talk, dress, walk, and behave like a stranger. He hated doing it, he was exiled from his own body while back in his native land.
And this is where the bias comes into play.
