Wednesday, July 18th, 2012 marks the 18th anniversary of the bombing of the Association Mutual Israelite Argentina (AMIA - the Jewish Community Center in Buenos Aires, Argentina). This act is considered one of the most tragic anti-Semitic acts since World War II, where 85 civilians perished and over 300 were injured.
Acclaimed Argentine filmmaker Marcos Carnevale has crafted a film which reckons with these horrific events. Rather than trying to explain this national tragedy by dissecting the events themselves, Carnevale sought to tell this story through the purest of souls: a young Jewish woman with Down syndrome named Anita.
