    Intimate portrait of Luis Quijano, son of a former oppressor of Argentina’s military dictatorship, whom after his father’s death in 2015 decides to file a formal accusation against him before the Court that deals with crimes against humanity lawsuits. Due to its eccentric nature—oppressor’s son reports his own father—the piece of news caught a great deal of local media attention. However, Luis Quijano deserves a deeper approach than just a brief TV report. This is where this investigation of this project comes into place.
