Chilean Ambassador visits Bethlehem University

The Ambassador of Chile to Palestine Sir Francisco Bernales visited Bethlehem University on the occasion of the Latin Film Festival being held during the month November. The film screened was ‘Machuca’, a famous Chilean film by director Andres Wood which accounts of the overthrow of the Marxist Salvador Allende government and the installment of the Junta government of Augusto Pinochet through the eyes of two boys who form an unlikely friendship. Ambassador Bernales remarked that during that time he was a high school student and vividly rememberd that political period in Chile's history.

Brother Peter Bray and Brother Stephen Tuohy officially welcomed the Ambassador and thanked him for being able to join the cultural activity at Bethlehem University. During the subsequent reception, attending students and guests were invited to discuss the film as well as meet with Ambassador Bernales.
