The Disappeared (96 min.) documents Argentina’s “Dirty War” (1976-1983), when the country’s right-wing military junta suppressed leftist dissenters. Its tactics included torture, murder, and mass kidnapping. As a boy, Sanders lived with his family in Argentina and was a friend of Horatio Pietragalla, through whose eyes the film is told. Horatio’s birth mother, a leftist who opposed the military government, was among those killed by the regime. Raised by a family who adopted him after his mother’s death, Pietragalla struggles to understand his biological roots.

The film, which grew out of Sanders’ master’s thesis documentary, won the Special Prize Best Documentary at 500
