Product Description:

Anyone interested in the history of regime change in Latin America should find this documentary intriguing. The film chronicles, over a period, the tragic results of the 1976 military coup in Argentina. Tens of thousands of people lost their lives during this era. Perhaps most unnerving, as the film demonstrates, is that so many have no idea what happened to their loved ones.

The military leadership took people away in silence, informing families of nothing. Those placed in concentration camps never returned. It is this quiet about what happened that the survivors want to stop. They formed an organization, Daughters and Sons for Identity and Justice Against Forgetting and Silence (HIJOS), featured in the film.

One HIJOS member, Lucia Garcia, who is the focal point of the narrative here, fought for over 15-years to get justice for her stolen parents. She and her sister have waning memories of their parents, demonstrating to viewers the effect of the loss on these women.

People generally consider Argentina one of the more stable South American nations. Consequently, there is a tendency to ignore these years of turmoil. HIJOS wants the world to understand what happened, to prevent the same from occurring again. This film is a means to give a voice to those who can no longer speak for themselves. The dead cannot tell what happened to them. Thus, Lucia Garcia takes on that burden for her parents and others whose stories deserve an audience.
