Synopsis

Shlomo Slutzky, an Argentinean immigrant to Israel, follows the traces of his cousin Samuel who was murdered by the 1970’s Argentinian dictatorship. Shlomo’s journey takes a sharp turn when he discovers that one of the suspected murderers – Interpol
fugitive, Aníbal Teodoro Gauto – has found shelter in Israel. Tomer Slutzky follows his father’s fight to extradite Gauto for trial in Argentina. What begins as a father and son’s discovery of a family secret turns into an investigative drama and a public international affair when they meet fierce opposition from the state, which remains determined to protect Gauto and prevent the unveiling of dark secrets from the past.

Reviews

  • Bronca is a powerful documentary that goes head-on against injustice
    Milagros Amonaray, La Nacion
  • An essential documentary that illustrates how collaboration between entities with common interests promotes the avoidance of payment for crimes against humanity
    Ronaldo Gallego, Ludiconews
  • An excellent documentary, with an autobiographical component, which is undoubtedly the story of many others.
    Mónica Sara Eckstein Hauer, Pantalla Partida
  • With his camera, Tomer Slutsky, Shlomo's son, accompanies the intimate moments of his father's "Don-Quixotian" battle to achieve justice, with empathy and the concern of a son, but also with the watchful gaze of a young man these days
    Nito Marsiglio, Cine Argentino Hoy
