Films We Love: Nae Pasaran!

In 1974, workers at the Rolls Royce Factory in East Kilbride stopped work on maintaining the engines of the Chilean Air Force’s fighter jets. They had heard of General Pinochet’s military coup and refused to continue their work in solidarity with the protests against this oppressive dictatorship. Over four decades later the now long-retired workers tell their story and experience the revelation of just how impactful their actions were. With the voice of the workers at its heart, the film is a careful unfolding of a remarkable story, following the fate of the Hawker Hunter engines, the solidarity movements across the world, and tracing a direct line of impact from Scotland to Chile. Edinburgh-based Chilean filmmaker Felipe Bustos Sierra takes a considered approach, using archive news footage, interviewing members of the military and tracking down dissidents, to create a stirring document that treats its subjects with a humanity that befits their courageous actions. “We love Nae Pasaran! for uncovering a story that we can all relate to, take pride in and were moved by: that of ordinary people who not only felt compassion for an oppressed people, but took action in a seemingly small, but hugely significant way.” Screen Machine team English and Spanish, with English subtitles throughout. 12A: contains brief images of dead bodies, references to torture Before Nae Pasaran, we will show a short film (10 mins): Mining Poems or Odes. Directed by Callum Rice in 2015. Robert, an ex-shipyard welder from Govan, reflects on how his life experiences have influenced his newfound compulsion to write. This screening is part of Films We Love. In September 2018 we launched Films We Love as a way of showcasing our commitment to broadening the Screen Machine’s programme, focusing first on World Cinema. Now, our first Films We Love season in 2019 brings four new documentaries to a range of locations on our touring route. Each documentary is connected to Scotland in some way, whether that’s where it was produced, the subject of the film, or the filmmakers themselves. We’ve chosen these films for the considered and inquisitive ways they present their subjects, whether they’re revealing a very Scottish sense of solidarity, or demonstrating Scotland’s huge cultural impact around the world. We hope you’ll discover a story you connect with as much as we have. Tell us what you think of Films We Love!
