The film “Argentina, 1985”, starring Ricardo Darín and Peter Lanzani, is causing a furor at international film festivals and is already emerging as one of the Argentine candidates for the Oscar Awards.
In this context, we review Argentina’s history again with the journalist Germán Negro, and this time we go back to that emblematic year on which the film in question is based.
The film focuses on the story of prosecutors Julio César Strassera (Darín) and Luis Moreno Ocampo (Lanzani), who in 1985 were responsible for investigating and prosecuting those responsible for crimes against humanity committed by the bloodiest military dictatorship in Argentine history.
The scenario: more than 30,000 disappeared. “The greatest genocide” in the history of the country, as prosecutor Julio Strassera, who led the accusation, stated before the judges.
