A group of people come together in the Welsh town of Machynlleth to produce El Sueño Existe (The Dream Lives On), a festival of politics and culture.
Their inspiration comes from Victor Jara, a visionary musician and theatre director, who was a high-profile supporter of the socialist government of Salvador Allende in Chile. Jara was murdered by the Pinochet dictatorship that violently overthrew Allende in the September 1973 military coup.
Fragments of a Dream journeys to the festival to spend time with the musicians, academics, activists and others, such as Jeremy Corbyn, who have come together to celebrate Jara’s life and legacy, and their quest for a better world for all.
Doors open at 8pm and the films start at 8.15pm. This will be followed by an in-person Q&A with the film’s directors and guests from the film, Jimena Pardo (Bordando por la Memoria) and Tony Corden (El Sueño Existe Festival). Before closing the Q&A, Tony will be joined by Polly Henderson (who also features in the film) to perform two songs inspired by Victor Jara. Their duo is called Pagan Teapot.
This is an 18+ event.
