Description: 'Burnt Oranges' concerns the long-term effects and repercussions -- both personal and social -- of Argentina's 1970s state terrorism. By juxtaposing an intimate first person witness narration with interviews and re-created footage, issues of memory, historical time, identity, love, loss and accountability emerge. The film vividly reveals current life in Buenos Aires through the eyes of a long-gone native, while it records and uncovers compelling testimonies of resistance, transformation, and hope. Fundamental to the film are the voices of members of Argentine human rights organizations. They contribute to our understanding of core questions of human action, the potential for creation and destruction and the necessity of accountability.
