D: Jonathan Perel, Argentina 2020, 68 min, OV with English subtitles

Over the last 15 years, the bloody military regime (1976–1983) has been referred to as a "civic-military dictatorship" due to the heavy involvement of civil sectors in its operations. Those linked to big companies were the main beneficiaries of its economic policies. These companies actively contributed to the repression of workers and union delegates and even to the tragic count of the 30,000 ”desaparecidos”. Jonathan Perel's documentary is as precise as possible about this complicity with death and terror. His method is disarmingly simple, but also clear and powerful: The documentary consists of handheld long shots of these companies all over Argentina today, most of them still active. On the soundtrack, we hear excerpts from the 25 case studies which make up the report by the Ministry of Justice and Human Rights.
