M by Prividera, Nicolas & Ratto, Pablo

Nicolas Prividera, Argentinan filmmaker and son of Marta Sierra tells the story of his mother who disappeared when Videla seized power in 1976. In this long, extensive documentary Prividera follows the traces of his mother by visiting institutes and overmore, talking to family, friends and her former coworkers at INTA. As the story unravels, Nicolas finds out more and more about his mothers past, her political ideas and the dangerous political situation during the dirty war in Argentina.

Social Interest
The political conflicts and the the dirty war in Argentina have lead to the disappearance of thousands of people. These disappearances of mainly politically active persons are internationally seen as human rights violations: Between 1976 and 1983 the estimated amount of disappearance cases is around 30,000.

Political Relevance
Ever since the 1950s, a large part of the Argentinan citizens has been supporting the political movement called Peronism. Eventually, this support evolved in multiple left- and right wing political groups. After Videlas coupe d etat in 1976, the military junta heavily supressed their political opponents in the the dirty war.
