"18-J" or "July 18th" is a wide-screen, full-length feature film produced in Argentina. The film is comprised of 10 ten-minute shorts by ten of the most popular directors in Sudamerica (South America). July 18th, 1994 is the date upon which terrorists parked and detonated a bomb-laden van in front of the AMIA Building, killing 86 people and wounding over 300 others. AMIA is the Argentina-Israeli Mutual Association, a charity, and this incident signifies the largest single incident of terrorism against Jews since World War II. Each Director portrays his or her memory and impression of that day in their own unique and stylized way. The ten short films are shown in a sequence which flows smoothly and cannot avoid drawing out an emotional reaction from the viewer.
