ARGENTINA’S SUBMISSION FOR BEST INTERNATIONAL FEATURE FILM • 2023 ACADEMY AWARDS®
Argentina, 1985 is inspired by the true story of public prosecutors Julio Strassera, and Luis Moreno Ocampo, who dared to investigate and prosecute Argentina’s bloodiest military dictatorship in 1985. Undeterred by the military’s still considerable influence within their fragile new democracy, Strassera and Moreno Ocampo assembled a young legal team of unlikely heroes for their David-vs-Goliath battle. Under constant threat to themselves and their families, they raced against time to bring justice to the victims of the military junta. In Spanish with English subtitles. Director Santiago Mitre (Argentina 2022) 140 min.
