THE OTHER 9/11.When the twin towers came down in New York, Chileans relived the nightmare of their own 9/11. Almost three decades earlier, they had seen in horror the bombing of a symbol of national pride, the President’s palace. Chilean innovative artist Quique Cruz joins this program to reflect on those memories. A survivor of Pinochet’s torture chambers, Cruz has prepared an art work entitled “Villa Grimaldi: Archeology of Memory,” which includes a musical suite, a book and a documentary film gathering experiences of artists who survived Villa Grimaldi, one of the most notorious torture center of the U.S.-sponsored dictatorship. The U.S. public television network is planning to distribute the film.
