Synopsis

Frontage as a profession of faith: argentine filmmaker Perel parks his car in front of several buildings which served as headquarters for Argentine industries or companies and, over a fixed shot, reads in detail a 2015 government report listing how each company sacrificed their politically active employees on behalf of the local dictatorship. His voice projects a rotten past, which allowed to safeguard an autocratic State through the complicity (and active participation) of the local economic elite. Revealing and painful, urgent and timeless, a devastating film as it remembers our shared Latin history. (E. V)
