Today’s glimpse from our gallery of past MCC fellows/finalists: Juan Mandelbaum’s (Film & Video Finalist ’07) documentary Our Disappeared/Nuestros Desaparecidos.

The film, which appeared on on Independent Lens on PBS, traces the filmmaker’s investigations of the fate of a past girlfriend, one of Argentina’s many “disappeared” during it’s Dirty War of the ’70s and ’80s.

For further interest, watch the below embedded video, Shadows of Memory. The Our Disappeared YouTube Channel features a number of videos that accompany the feature-length film, including interviews that were cut from the final version or additional material like the video embedded here.

It’s an interesting use of social media for a documentary filmmaker, continuing the conversation while maintaining the film’s integrity as a finished work of art.
