Movilizados en LA por Chile invites you to the screening of Chicago Boys

Written and directed by Carola Fuentes and Rafael Valdeavellano, this film tells the story of the Chicago Boys, a group of economists trained at the Catholic University of Chile who, after conducting graduate studies at the University of Chicago under professors such as Milton Friedman and Arnold Harberger, return to their country and, after Augusto Pinochet's military dictatorship (1973-1990), become the main ideologues of the implementation of the neoliberal economic model in Chile.
