EL TIGRE SALTÓ, Y MATÓ, PERÓ MORIRÁ…MORIRÁ (Der Tiger sprang und tötete, aber er wird sterben…)

As entirely unorthodox a newsreel as such a title suggests, the film is named after a phrase of Martí’s; ist sound is that of three Chilenean songs sung by Víctor Jara, who died among the numberless victims of the coup who passed through Santiago’s football stadium.
