About Argentina, 1985
Argentina, 1985 is inspired by the true story of prosecutors Julio Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo, who dared to investigate and prosecute Argentina’s bloodiest military dictatorship in 1985. Undaunted by the still considerable influence of the military in their fragile new democracy, Strassera and Moreno Ocampo has assembled a young legal team of unlikely heroes for this battle of David against Goliath. Under constant threat to themselves and their families, they raced against time to bring justice to the victims of the military junta. The award-winning director Santiago Miter directs the film, which he co-wrote with his longtime collaborator Mariano Llinás. The film features a star-studded cast, with Ricardo Darin in the role of Julio Strassera and Peter Lanzani as Luis Moreno Ocampo.
