We have the pleasure to inform you that was inaugurated the official site of the film RAYMUNDO.
This is a documentary film about the life and work of Raymundo Gleyzer, Argentine filmmaker, kidnapped and murdered by that country’s military dictatorship in 1976.
Through Raymundo’s life, the film follows the story of Latin American revolutionary cinema and the liberation struggles of the 60’s and 70’s. Raymundo was one of the major architects of the militant cinema, yet after his " disappearance ", he fell into oblivion.
It is essential that the new generation rediscovers his life and works which are a source of inspiration today more than ever . This documentary will bring back what the CIA and the Latin American dictatorships couldn’t destroy: the memory, the ideals and the courage to tell the truth.
