film stillDON'T THREATEN ME is a fast paced and enlightening document of the events of 1988 to 1990 which marked the end of the military dictatorship in Chile.

Combining poetry, music, and various spectacles with razor sharp analyses, Chilean filmmaker Racz reveals his people's struggle for democracy during the final years of the Pinochet regime.

Poets Raul Zurita and Nicanor Parra, Bishop Tomas Gonzalez, Chile's most important politicians, even Pinochet's fortune teller, comment on the events that ended the almost two decades of oppression after the Allende era.

The first film on the restoration of democracy in Chile, DON'T THREATEN ME considers - in its own unique style - the many problems that confront President Patricio Aylwin as he leads his country's democratic transition.

"A brilliant impressionistic documentary about what should have been the last year of Pinochet's vicious regime." - The Guardian (London)

"Exuberant... Racz has created a fast-moving, thought provoking documentary about the elections, an event largely neglected by the U.S. news media... Any collection focusing on Chile or Latin America will want to consider this tape." - Video Rating Guide for Libraries
