page 34 of 116 of Clandestine in Chile: The Adventures of Miguel Littín

The blurring of the line between film making and true life is never more bizarrely crossed as when Miguel, after being arrested, is asked by the guard how directors can make movie dead bodies bleed like real ones. That story is then followed up with the slitting of the three men’s throats in real life.

The scene where the old woman congratulates him on being from Uruguay is sadly funny as is the bench with hearts.
