Trama: Buenos Aires, 1977. Una giovane donna partorisce in un ospedale due gemelli, un maschio e una femmina: ad aiutare la puerpera c'è solo un'ostetrica cui la donna chiede di salvare uno dei due bambini. Tutto avviene velocemente: non appena pulito, il maschietto viene portato via da due uomini dai modi sbrigativi, la femminuccia, che è stata nascosta in una borsa, viene fatta uscire dall'ospedale furtivamente dall'ostetrica, la giovane donna, ancora stravolta dal parto, viene trascinata via di peso da due militari. Milano, 2000. Rosa, una ragazza argentina, rintraccia, dopo averlo a lungo cercato, quello che lei afferma essere il suo gemello, Javier, che vive in una lussuosa villa dell'hinterland con suo padre Raul, ex pilota dell'aviazione argentina e sua madre Vittoria. Il primo incontro con Rosa fa rinascere in Javier dei dubbi che da sempre nutre, magari inconsciamente, ovvero di non essere realmente figlio della coppia che lo ha allevato. Messi con le spalle al muro dal ragazzo, Raul e Vittoria prima rifiutano di parlare dell'argomento poi reagiscono in modo scomposto (lui diventa aggressivo, lei si chiude in un enigmatico silenzio), accrescendo i sospetti di Javier che, a quel punto, decide di seguire Rosa a Barcellona. Giunti nella città spagnola rintracciano la vecchia ostetrica che rivela di aver visto all'ospedale, proprio il giorno in cui nacque Rosa, Vittoria con un cuscino sotto il maglione a simulare la gravidanza e Raul portare via rapidamente un fagotto. L'esame del DNA, tuttavia, smentisce ogni relazione di consanguineità tra i due ragazzi Anche se, ormai, molto legato a Rosa dalle vicissitudini degli ultimi giorni, Javier decide di ritornare a Milano dai genitori e alla vita di sempre, salvo poi, un po' di tempo dopo, sparire improvvisamente. Ritroveremo il ragazzo a Buenos Aires, al fianco di Rosa, ad una manifestazione dell'associazione HIJOS che riunisce i parenti dei desaparecidos e persegue gli ex militari del regime
Junta Garage Olimpo by Marco Bechis( Visual )

9 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in Spanish and German and held by 18 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eine junge Lehrerin wird von Zuhause entführt und in einer ausgedienten Autowerkstatt gefangen gehalten und gefoltert - von einem der Untermieter in ihrem Haus, der sie zudem liebt. Basierend auf Fakten sowie eigenen Erlebnissen des Regisseurs, werden auf ebenso beklemmende wie unspektakuläre Weise die Methoden der argentinischen Militärjunta dargestellt, Oppositionelle verschwinden zu lassen. Gefilmt wurde unter Verzicht auf spektakuläre Szenen mit der Handkamera bei natürlichem Licht. Im Kontrast dazu steht die Normalität des argentinischen Alltags, der im gleißenden Licht unwirklich und verlogen wirkt. [film-dienst]

La région du Mato Grosso au Brésil, de nos jours. Après le suicide de l'un des siens, Nadio, chef d'une tribu Guarani-Kaiowa, décide de dresser un campement sur les terres des Blancs. Pour lui, comme pour le chaman, il s'agit de réparer une terrible injustice : récupérer les terres dont ils ont été spoliés autrefois ... Malgré les menaces et les intimidations des propriétaires terriens, les Indiens décident de rester sur place pour reprendre leurs droits, coûte que coûte. Désormais, deux mondes se font face, sans jamais cesser de s'observer. Alors qu'une idylle se noue entre la fille d'un riche fermier et Osvaldo, le disciple du chaman, l'hostilité des Blancs monte d'un cran. L'affrontement semble inévitable ... La terre des hommes rouges, dont le titre original est Birdwatchers, c'est-à-dire ceux qui épient les oiseaux, n'est pas seulement un film sur le conflit qui oppose une communauté indienne aux pouvoirs des Blancs, mais surtout un portrait douloureux d'une identité qui se meurt à petit feu, qui se meurt au sens physique du terme à travers les nombreux suicides qui ébranlent la tribu, mais qui meurt aussi spirituellement, étant par la force détachée de son mode de vie, donc de ses coutumes, de sa foi, de ce qui faisait sa force Bonus : Making of, Interview de la scénariste, Scènes coupées, Photographies de Joao Ripper, Notes sur la musique, Bandes-annonces, Notes de production, Présentation de l'association Survival

Ogni leader carismatico, in qualsiasi epoca, ha pensato di costruire la popolarità attraverso una maniacale cura della propria immagine. Sfruttando i mezzi e le tecnologie che aveva a disposizione. Il duce italiano Benito Mussolini ha avuto la ventura di essere pressoché contemporaneo alla nascita di quello che, all'inizio del Ventesimo secolo, era il media piú potente, amato e diffuso: il cinema. Intuendone le straordinarie potenzialità ha creato l'Istituto Luce per diffondere il culto della sua personalità e per formare "l'uomo nuovo" a sua immagine e somiglianza, altro sogno di ogni dittatura

Donde no habite el olvido : Herencia y transmisión de testimonio en Argentina by Fernando Reati( )

1 edition published in 2020 in Spanish and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

En este libro se recogen los resultados de diversas investigaciones dedicadas al estudio del género testimonial, en particular a sus huellas en el tiempo. Tanto la vigencia como la herencia dejada por el testimonio son el eje de los estudios que aquí se reúnen, para explorar sobre todo los modos y las formas que asume la transmisión de la memoria cuarenta años después del fin de la dictadura cívico-militar en la Argentina. Los resultados de este proceso de investigación, que es a la vez profunda reflexión y posicionamiento, se presentan en este libro a través de un recorrido que abarca tanto la escritura de testimonios directos y la narrativa de los Hijos, como las prácticas testimoniales y de denuncia realizadas a través de recursos cinematográficos, artísticos y museales. La experiencia traumática se narra también a partir de la primera persona en los cuatro dosieres que cierran el volumen, en que los testigos (Mario Villani, Marco Bechis, Alicia Kozameh, Nora Strejilevich) siguen entregándonos sus palabras y visiones en formatos variados, desde sus propios textos a las entrevistas y las imágenes

Alambrado( Visual )

4 editions published in 1991 in Italian and Undetermined and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Eva, a rebellious 17-year old, and her 13-year old taciturn brother, Juan, live with their father, Harvey Logan, on a barren stretch of land in Patagonia a short distance from the Straits of Magellan--a place of incessant winds. Harvey treats his children severely and raises them in isolation. Eva dreams of escaping to Paris, or anywhere far away from this place; Juan memorizes Old Testament geneology in hopes of participating in a TV quiz show. The appearance of a young English businessman, Wilson, interrupts the family's monotonous existance when, with the help of an Argentine engineer, Wilson plans a tourist development with a landing strip to be constructed through the Logan's property. Harvey battles the plans by erecting a fence (alambrado) around the property. One morning, at dawn, the winds stop blowing; it is the beginning of a day that will change the lives of Eva and Juan
