An excellent documentary about Argentina's last dictatorship.
After "La República Perdida" was made, which covered 1930 to 1976, there was an important part of Argentina's history yet to be told, which was too recent to be covered by the first documentary. The first movie was made at the end of the last dictatorship. This second documentary covers this last dictatorship from 1976 to 1983, the most cruel one ever in Argentine's history, and the Falklands (Malvinas) war as well. This Nazi-like dictatorship shows the worst of human kind, the complete lack of empathy, which is one of the things that makes us human. Huge massacres with a complete religious catholic hypocrisy (even part of the the Argentine's Catholic church was heavily involved), the economical disaster of the implementation of a brute force liberalism, the complete lack of rights, and an utterly social dismay. This documentary shows as well how we, Argentinians, tend to evade our historical responsibilities and not to feel other's grief. Certainly the most important goal of this documentary is to show and teach the new generations in order to avoid repeating always the same error. Enough blood has already washed our land, and it's time to think a new future, with justice for the past, and hope for the times to come.
