“A…powerful, at times unforgettable, documentary… It’s utterly compelling and definitely worth seeing… it’s a must-see because you soon learn that it’s about more than Chile. It’s about how the world works.” - John Doyle, The Globe and Mail
”A Promise to the Dead: The Exile Journey of Ariel Dorfman is an exploration of exile, memory, longing and democracy through the words and memories of playwright/author/activist, Ariel Dorfman (Death and the Maiden, How to Read Donald Duck, Other Septembers). The documentary was filmed in the USA, Argentina and Chile in late 2006 coinciding with the death of former Chilean dictator, Augusto Pinochet” (From official website).
