The film “Argentina, 1985” won tonight the Golden Globe award for best non-English language film awarded by the Hollywood Foreign Press Association (HFPA).
The production of Santiago Mitre, starring Ricardo Darín and which refers to the trials of the boards, was thus very well positioned for the Oscars, where it was already selected for the long list.
“For the people of Argentina, after winning the soccer world championship, this is a great joy,” said Ricardo Darín, after apologizing and breaking the protocol of the celebration held at the Beverly Hilton Hotel, and speaking in Castilian.
Before, Miter himself highlighted in English that in addition to his team, he shared the prize with those who “fought for democracy in Argentina.”
Mitre’s film, the most viewed of the year in national cinema and which is available on Amazon Prime, is inspired by the true story of prosecutors Julio Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo, who in 1985 carried out the trial of the boards of the last military dictatorship.
So excited to see Argentina, 1985 win for Best Motion Picture – Non-English Language tonight! 💛
