Whitby Film Society presents Nae Pasaran

  • 2019-10-31 19:45:00

Nae Pasaran

Documentary English 2018 Cert: 12A  - 96 mins

Director:  Felipe Bustos Sierra

Best feature film: 2018 Academy Scotland Film Awards

A moving and uplifting documentary about the decency and moral courage of a group of Scottish Rolls-Royce workers and trade unionists.

1974:  Rolls – Royce workers in East Kilbride refuse to repair jet engines from the Chilean air force in protest against General Pinochet’s bloody military coup that had toppled the democratically elected government of Salvadore Allende.

Four years later the engines mysteriously disappear, ending the longest single action of international solidarity in the UK.

The workers never knew the scale of the impact of their action

Until now.

The director grew up in Chile in the 1980s hearing the stories of these heroic Scottish workers. In this film he brings them together again to tell their story and to show them that their act of solidarity did reach some political prisoners and how it gave them strength to know they were not forgotten.

Bring a hankie.
