A powerful investigative documentary that exposes human depravation.
Some forty years ago, a German sect settled in the Chilean
countryside and established a colony, Colonia Dignidad. In 2005, the
leader of the colony, and former member of the SS, Paul Schäfer, was
jailed for 20 years for abuse of minors. During the documentary we
learn that he had friends in high places in Chilean society,
particularly when Pinochet and his Junta ran the country. Pinochet's
regime turned the colony into one of the worst torture camps in Chile.
Colonia Dignidad still survives today, and some argue that this is
due to its economic power and its powerful friends in business and
in national and international politics. In Chile it is said that the
day the Colony Dignity falls, the light will finally come out on all
the crimes of the Latin-American dictatorships.
