The plot of “Argentina, 1985” is inspired by the real struggle of prosecutors Julio Strassera and Luis Moreno Ocampo, who dared to investigate and prosecute the country’s military dictatorship in 1985.

Undeterred by the influence of the military, which remained powerful in the new democracy to the point of frightening prosecutors, the two assembled a legal team of young men who, with no careers to lose, became unlikely heroes in the fight against impunity. . . Under constant threat to themselves and their families, they went to great lengths to bring justice to the victims of the military junta – contrary to what happened in Brazil, where there was no state punishment for murderers and torturers.

The stellar cast includes Ricardo Darín and Peter Lanzani (“The Clan”) as Strassera and Ocampo.

Santiago Miter’s film will face the German “Nothing New on the Front”, the Belgian “Close”, the Polish “EO” and the Irish “The Silent Girl” in the race for the Oscars.

Among the competing titles, “Argentina, 1985” can be seen on Amazon Prime Video and “Nada de Novo no Front” on Netflix. The others are still unreleased in Brazil.
