Film Screening, Infancia Clandestina (Argentina, Spain, Brazil 2012)
Directed by Benjamín Ávila.
A historical film set during Argentina’s “Dirty War”. A married couple and their children return clandestinely to Buenos Aires to take part in anti-government action. Narrated from the point of view of Juan, one of the children, the film explores Argentina under the brutal government of General Jorge Rafael Videla that saw millions “disappear”. Mystified by his parents’ plight, Juan’s first budding romance sees him distracted by his dawning sexuality. As a heartbreaking series of events unfold, Juan observes life around himself – unsure of where he fits in or how to make his voice heard.
