October 3 at 7:00 PM

We've listened to your suggestions and here we bring you this Argentinian historical drama based on the real political events that took place in Argentina after Jorge Rafael Videla's reactionary military junta assumed power on March 24, 1976. 

Directed by Luis Puenzo and set in Buenos Aires, this film tells the story of an upper middle class couple, Alicia and Roberto, and their adopted child Gaby. The mother comes to realize that her daughter may be the child of a ‘desaparecido', a victim of the forced disappearances that occurred during Argentina's military dictatorship.

In what became known as the Dirty War (1976-1983), between 9,000 and 30,000 people deemed left-wing "subversives" disappeared from society.

The film was entirely shot in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina, including the Plaza de Mayo where the Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo congregated in the late 1970s with signs and pictures of desaparecidos who were subjected to forced disappearance by the Argentine military. These women continue to protest every Thursday afternoon at 3:30 pm in the Plaza de Mayo in Buenos Aires.
