Salvador Allende a donné sa vie pour le Chili, son pays. Fondateur du Parti Socialiste Chilien, marxiste convaincu sans être un théoricien, il est avant tout un humaniste, un "gentilhomme" en politique. Candidat à l'élection présidentielle à trois reprises, en 52, en 58 où il frôle la victoire, en 64 enfin, il est à chaque fois battu. Il reprend la lutte, enraciné dans le jeu démocratique. Le 4 novembre 1970, il est élu président de la République et s'engage à corps perdu dans la transformation socialiste de son pays, obsédé par le respect pointilleux de la démocratie et de ses institutions.Cet amour pour le respect de la loi, pour la démocratie, va lui coûter la vie et plonger le Chili dans la longue nuit de la dictature durant plus de 17 ans.
L'Hypothese du tableau vole The hypothesis of the stolen painting ( Visual )
1 edition published in 1991 in French and held by 22 libraries worldwide
An erudite art collector guides an unseen interviewer around six paintings by Frederic Tonnerre, a fictitious 19th century painter, in an attempt to solve the mystery of a missing seventh painting, the disapperance of which has provoked a major scandal. Ruiz's intriguing meditation on the possibilities and limitations of the pictorial in the cinema is also a detective story with clues and solution. The film presents the six paintings as tableaux vivants in which the actors hold poses as they are minutely examined. The film forces the viewer-voyeur to reappraise his approach to static paintings and to the narrative flow of film.
