Interrogating a Torturer (2009)

In 1976, a coup brought a military junta headed by General Jorge Videla to power in Argentina. The junta launched a campaign of terror and fought a five-year war against all who opposed them. Thousands of people were imprisoned, tortured and murdered by the army and secret police.

27 years later, some of the torturers finally faced trial. The first to be convicted was Julio Simon, who is now behind bars. One of his victims, Gerardo Brusezzi, a Uraguayan journalist, returned to Argentina to confront his torturer face to face.

Lost and Found (2010)

Does the state have the right to force a person to find out who their real parents are? Does a grandmother have the right to find a grandchild born in a secret interrogation centre and given away by her birth mother's tormentors?

This is the debate that is raging in Argentina 27 years after the end of the country's Dirty War, in which the military dictatorship detained and killed an estimated 30,000 people.
