The furthest boundary by Ratto, Pablo

Director Ratto succesfully intertwines the clinical world of forensic anthropology with the moving stories of Argentinian people searching for the traces of their disappeared loved ones. Twenty years after their disappearance during the dirty war in Argentina, teams of professionals are working together with friends and relatives of the disappeared persons in order to unravel the secrets of the mass grave at the San Vincente cemetary in Cordoba.

Social Interest
The political conflicts and the dirty war in Argentina have lead to the disappearance of thousands of people. These disappearances of thousands of mainly politically active persons are internationally seen as human rights violations. Accordingly, remains of the disappeared have been found in mass graves like the one shown in this documentary.

Scientific Relevance
To identify the human remains in the mass grave at the San Vincente cemetary in Cordoba, Argentina, a team of forensic anthropologists are studying the skeletons. This documentary shows the scientists of the EAAF working at the cemetary and in laboratories.

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 dirty war
