Argentina, 1985

Latin Wave

Inspired by a true story, Argentina, 1985 follows public prosecutors Julio César Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo, along with their young legal team of unlikely heroes, in a David-vs-Goliath battle to prosecute Argentina’s bloodiest military dictatorship. Under constant threat, they raced against time and all odds to bring justice to the victims of the military junta. Winner of a Golden Globe and nominated for Best International Feature at the 2023 Oscars, the film stars renowned actor Ricardo Darín.
