The Transitional/Transnational Justice Working Group at the Center for Global Studies, the Institute for Conflict Analysis and Resolution/ Point of View and Global Interdisciplinary Programs will present a film screening of “WHO AM I? The Found Children of Argentina” on Thursday, April 29, from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Johnson Center Cinema.

Filmmaker Estela Bravo will be on hand for a discussion of the film.

The children of Argentina’s ‘disappeared’ are now young adults struggling with complex and traumatic discoveries. For three decades, the Plaza de Mayo Grandmothers have been searching for their 500 stolen grandchildren, the children of their own children who disappeared in Argentina’s Dirty War (1976-83).

To date, 100 of these missing children have been found and have recovered their true identity.  “WHO AM I?” tells their story.

This film is part of the Global Justice Film Series. For more information, see the web site.
