About the film:
Kill Them All / Matar a todos
Series: LatinBeat 2008
Director: Esteban Schroeder, Release: 2007, Runtime: 97
An Uruguayan human rights prosecutor in post-junta Montevideo must investigate her own family’s role in the country’s military past after the covered-up kidnapping of a notorious Chilean biochemical engineer. Based on real events, Esteban Schroeder’s second film is narrated through the point of view of a strong yet vulnerable woman who has embarked on a crusade to defend the values of her country’s hard-earned democracy. Starring the extraordinary Roxana Blanco, who won Best Actress at the Havana Film Festival, film’s outstanding cast and compelling noir imagery inject the story with a sense of utmost urgency.
Shedding light on the complex web of secret connections woven by Operation Condor, a 1970s initiative that allowed dictatorships to help each other hide evidence, Kill Them All daringly captures the vulnerability of young Latin American democracies to the legacy and dark histories they are trying to leave behind, while finding ample reason for hope.
Roxana Blanco’s visit is made possible by Ministerio de Cultura y Educacion Uruguay and Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores del Uruguay.
