CONVERSATION WITH ALLENDE
1971, 30 minutes
In this historic interview, President Salvador Allende articulates his basic beliefs and lays out the program he intends to pursue as leader of the Popular Unity government. The conversation shows with rare candor Allende's deep-seated belief in the Chilean Constitution and in the ability of his coalition to maintain control for the elected six-year period. He discusses the legal road to socialism, the anticipated problems with the Nixon Administration and the CIA, and how he planned to handle the antagonism of the Chilean bourgeoisie. He also talks about his early days as a doctor, recounting how his medical career and contact with the poor led to his conversion to socialism.
