Join DRCLAS and the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy for the premiere of “Argentina, 1985.”
The film follows the true story of young Argentine lawyers Luis Moreno Ocampo and Julio Strassera who dared to prosecute the leaders of Argentina’s 1976-1983 military dictatorship in a monumental effort to bring justice to the victims of the military junta. The film is directed and co-written by Santiago Mitre and co-produced by Amazon Studios, La Unión de los Ríos, Kenya Films and Infinity Hill. The film stars Peter Lanzani as Moreno Ocampo and Ricardo Darín as Strassera. It will be released in theaters on September 30, 2022, and available for streaming on Amazon Prime Video on October 21, 2022.
Following the screening, Luis Moreno Ocampo, one of the film’s protagonists, will participate in a panel discussion alongside documentarian Juan Mandelbaum and film producer Cecilia Barrionuevo. Harvard Kennedy School Professor Kathryn Sikkink will chair the panel.
