2 Aug 20:45
In 1977, political activists Ana Maria Caruso and Roberto Carri joined the ranks of Argentina’s ‘disappeared’, the thousands kidnapped and murdered by dictatorship thugs. Albertina Carri was one of the three daughters left behind. With its dazzling array of narrative techniques and compelling candour, Carri’s extraordinary film is not just an investigation of her parents’ fate, or an indictment of the junta, but a reflection on documentary filmmaking itself.
