As Chile prepares to vote October 25th on whether to call a constitutional convention to rewrite the nation's Pinochet dictatorship era constitution, Veins of Resistance premieres, taking us to the streets as social movements unite in the years leading up to this pivotal moment for Chilean and Mapuche self determination.

Weaving together frontline narratives from people facing the inter-generational traumas of a CIA-backed coup, Indigenous genocides, and forced migrations, the film raises pressing questions. What happens when students in over 200 high schools vote to occupy their own schools and use them as protest camps for the semester to demand free quality education? How does it feel to take back your families' Indigenous territory from a multinational company? What does it mean to be a working mother while serving as the volunteer treasurer for a committee made up of 104 families in an urban land occupation, seeking to help each other save the money to move from their hand built shanty towns into public housing together?
