Film: Our Disappeared

Ever googled your old schoolfriends or your first love? Come on, admit it, you have. Perhaps their names were too common to get useful results, or perhaps they haven't made any mark on the World Wide Web, but more likely, if you're at all skilled at Internet searching, you can find something. A work email address, a Facebook account, even a blog. Sometimes, however, the news isn't good.

Film director Juan Mandelbaum googled his Argentine ex and found that she had joined the list of those disappeared during the 1976-83 dictatorship. This became the trigger for his film 'Our Disappeared', which US readers may be interested to know is airing tomorrow, 21 September, on PBS.
