Isabel Allende directed by Paula Rodriguez Sickert (Germany, 2007/2008, 58 min, Documentary)
Award-winning best selling novelist Isabel Allende has inherited her uncle's name and with it a legacy of troubled Chilean history. The world-famous Chilean author reveals her passionate engagement with life and politics. Born in Peru in 1942 and raised in her grandparent's house in Chile, she started her career as a journalist. After the Chilean army overthrew her uncle Salvador Allende's government, she spent thirteen years in political exile in Venezuela before love finally brought her to live in the United States. Isabel Allende manages to transform her passionate and painful life into literature, exorcising her experiences onto the page. What emerges is a portrait of a remarkable woman who not only emerged out of history but helped shape it directly. Isabel Allende in attendance.
