September 11, 1973 was an uproarious day in Chile. Carmen Aguirre, author and playwright, remembers that day vividly. In the below video, host of TheRealNews.com interviews Aguirre about her memories of that day. It’s a good interview and an even better primer about the Chilean revolution, which has not been forgotten by Chileans all over the world, especially those who, like Aguirre, fled Chile as refugees.
Join Carmen Aguirre tonight in Vancouver, BC, for a new play, a true story, and a salsa lesson.
