Gerald Peary’s Top Ten Films of the Year. (2008, December 29). The Phoenix: Outside the Frame.
“2008 was another banner year for excellent Boston documentaries. I can name a half-dozen of them, all intelligent, high-minded works. Juan Mandelbaum’s “Our Disappeared” is at the top of the list for its unflinching reopening of Argentina’s dirty war on the left during the 1970s, when thousands of people were murdered, “disappeared,” including a charming ex-girlfriend of the filmmaker. The most chilling moment in a 2008 film: Henry Kissinger, there on the spot in Buenos Aires, blithely endorsing the killing-fields military government.”

Incorporating interviews with survivors together with rarely-seen archival footage (including a startling TV clip of U.S. Secretary of State Henry Kissinger praising the Argentine dictators), Our Disappeared—which aired on the PBS series Independent Lens—offers a somber human perspective on a tragic chapter in Latin American history. Recommended.

“Terror consists not only of killing those who have to die,” says writer and historian José Pablo Feinmann, “but also of killing innocent people, so that everyone is fearful.” In Argentina during the 1970s, everyone was fearful.
