“Imagining Argentina” & “Chronicles of an Escape”

“Imagining Argentina” and “Chronicles of an Escape” clearly depict the atrocities committed during the years of the Dirty War in Argentina.  Both portray how the military dictatorships of the 1970’s, abused their power and supposedly under their propaganda of wanting to eliminate communism, tortured, raped and killed men, women and children.  Amnesty International estimated the number of people that were killed or that “disappeared” to be around 15,000.  Very well made movies, sometimes quite crude, but it was the only way to carry the point across of what Argentina was going through.


Ambas películas demuestran las barbaridades que se cometieron en Argentina durante los años 70 durante las dictaduras militares y como éstos abusaron de su poder bajo la supuesta excusa de que había que eliminar el comunismo.  Con esta excusa torturaron, violaron y mataron a miles de hombres, mujeres y niños.  La organización Amnistía Internacional calcula que murieron y “desaparecieron” alrededor de 15,000 personas.  Las películas están excelentes, algo violentas a veces, pero definitivamente  reflejan lo que realmente pasó en Argentina.
