About the film

TV Series — 2020 — Spanish, English with English subtitles

UK Premiere 

In July 1994, a suicide bomb exploded outside the Jewish community Centre in Buenos Aires, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds in what was Argentina’s deadliest terror attack hitherto. 21 years later, the body of Jewish federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found at his apartment, a mere few hours before he was due to testify against Argentina’s former President Cristina Kirchner, whom he had accused of covering up Iran’s culpability. Initially treated as suicide, it was later determined that Nisman was in fact murdered, with all fingers pointed to Kirchner. This gripping six-part documentary series recounts in forensic detail Argentinian Jews’ twofold tragedy, a true story steeped in high-level conspiracy, corruption and yet to be resolved mystery.

6 episodes, 52–60 mins. TV Series available until Thursday 19th November
