The Disappeared (Desaparecido

Relives the horrors of Argentina's Dirty War (1976-1983) through the experience of Horacio Pietragalla (aka Cesar Castillo), a young man raised by the maid of the officer who kidnapped him after the murder of his parents by the military. The film follows Horacio as he reconstructs the cause for which his real parents gave their lives, and, through this search, reclaims his true identity. The film personalizes the tragedy that ravaged the country for seven years and exposes polarized views on state-driven terrorism in groundbreaking interviews with top officials and military figures. Directed and produced by Peter Sanders. 2007. 96 min.
