Psalm 18 © DEFA-Stiftung
This short documentary shows a Chilean church service arranged by the new Pinochet government shortly after the September 1973 coup. The priest's words, however, subtly raise questions about the political role of the church in Chilean society.
Part of the Chile cycle by filmmaking team Walter Heynowski and Gerhard Scheumann.
