A time to fight - part I by Vazquez, Rodrigo

Twenty years after the military coup and the Dirty War in Argentina, the sons and daughters of the Disappeared created a movement called HIJOS. One of the daughters is Lucia Garcia. With interviews from the 1990s to 2011, this film chronicles her 15 year long struggle for justice. The trauma, both individual and collective, is set against the achievement of bringing former human rights abusers to court.

Political Relevance
After Videlas coupe d etat in 1976, the military junta in Argentina heavily suppressed their political opponents in the Dirty War. During the regime, thousands of people were abducted by the military and were often murdered. They are referred to as the Disappeared. Activist groups like Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo and HIJOS are still trying to give a voice to the lost victims of the regime and their family members.
