Film screening and dialogue with Judge Alejandro Solis, a Chilean judge who investigated Augusto Pinochet and resolved many of Chile’s major dictatorship-era human rights cases.

UCL Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) and the University of Ulster mark the 15th anniversary of this major milestone in international justice with a unique opportunity to hear first hand what happened once the general went home.
