Summary, etc.:
Bolivia's official submission to the 87th Academy Awards, THE FORGOTTEN is a thrilling movie about Operation Condor, under which the United States undermined democracy and supported brutal dictatorships througout Latin America.. Retired General Jos©♭ Mendieta (Dami©Łn Alc©Łzar) is haunted by his dark past as an officer in Operation Condor, the CIA-backed campaign of political repression in Latin America that was responsible for executions, torture, and imprisonments in the 1970's. It is estimated that over 400,000 people were imprisoned and 30,000 forcibly disappeared as a result of these government actions.. In a letter to his son Pablo (Bernardo Pe©ła), Mendieta confesses the role he played in the abduction, persecution, and execution of countless men and women during his posting to Chile. Journalist Marco (Carlotto Cotta) and his pregnant wife Luci©Ł (Carla Ortiz) are among those who were arrested, along with their activist friend Antonio (Tom©Łs Fonzi) and revolutionary Andrea (Ana Calentano). They suffer terribly under Mendieta and his cohort Sanera (Rafael Ferro), which leads to a cascade of betrayals, secrets, and stolen lives that spans generations.. THE FORGOTTEN has been screened at dozens of international festivals and has earned six Platino nominations and recently won 4 Maya Awards.
