Rating

Director Cecilia Cornejo presents a haunting personal response to the events of September 11, 2001, informed and complicated by her status as a Chilean citizen living in the U.S. at the time. Cornejo weaves together her own fading childhood memories, her parents' vivid recollections of the September 11, 1973 coup in Chile that brought the notorious dictator Augusto Pinochet to power; and post-9/11 conversations with her own young daughter. This film guide asks both text-dependent questions as well as asks students to reflect on the imagery and themes of the film for a more in-depth understanding.

Then, students will build upon their basic knowledge of weaving from the prior day to conduct a short research assignment with their classmates.
