La historia oficial / THE OFFICIAL STORY
It Happened Yesterday

In the Argentina of the military dictatorship, Alicia and Roberto lead a reasonably comfortable lifestyle with their adopted daughter, Gaby, thanks to Roberto's contacts in higher circles. One day, an old friend of Alicia's turns up after having spent a number of years exiled in Europe, explaining that she had left after having been imprisoned and tortured for over a month. She also tells Alicia that the arrested women included a number of pregnant mothers-to-be whose children were taken from them at birth for adoption by families favoured by the military regime, a revelation sewing seeds of concern in Alicia's mind due to the fact that she doesn't know where Gaby came from as Roberto took care of the whole adoption process.
LUIS PUENZO Innovated the outlines of commercial cinema, a genre he entered at the age of 16, consequently becoming one of the most imaginative and intuitive directors in the speciality and garnering a number of international awards. He debuted in feature films with Luces de mis apatos (1973), going on to shoot Las sorpresas (1975) and La historia oficial (1985), with which he won the Oscar for Best Foreign Film. His latest works are Old Gringo (1989), With Open Arms (1990) and La peste (1992).
