By 20, Héctor was without a country, living in exile in the U.S., the very place whose devastating foreign policies in Chile caused the death and torture of 1,000s of Chileans. The documentary follows Héctor as he returns to Chile almost 30 years later, camera in hand, to confront the perpetrators and his former captors looking for answers and justice. In the process 'Special Circumstances' takes an unflinching look at U.S. foreign policy in Latin America in the 1970s and the legacy of Pinochet with which Chile struggles today"--Container.
