A group of students at the University of Chile investigate how Chile's most influential newspaper El Mercurio manipulated information to hide human rights violations carried out during Pinochet's dictatorship. Agustin's Journal is the first film that dares to touch upon the power of El Mercurio and of Chilean media mogul Agustin Edwards, the newspaper's owner.

UCL Institute of the Americas and Alborada, present the screening of this multi-award winning film by Chilean director Ignacio Aguero. The screening will be followed by a panel discussion chaired by Dr Tanya Harmer (LSE) and with the participation of Jorge Saavedra Utman (Goldsmiths) and Pablo Naverrete (Alborada).
