This tense true-crime thriller recounts the astonishing true story of a seemingly normal Argentine family that secretly ran a deadly kidnapping ring. On the surface the Puccios look like most other families. Steely-eyed patriarch Arquimedes is coolly efficient, his “hits” meticulously planned, but he relies above all on his eldest son, a famed member of the national rugby team. Alex shares in the ransom money; his mother and other siblings are blissfully unaware, or else choose to ignore what is happening right under their noses. Perpetrated in the wake of the 1970s military junta, their crimes are indistinguishable from, and enabled by, political violence. Argentina; 106 min.

With food prepared by Film Streams Board Member Betiana Simon and a post-show discussion led by OLLAS and Foreign Languages & Literature professor at UNO, Eugenio Di Stefano.

El Clan 2015 (R)

Dirigido por Pablo Trapero.

Este thriller de gran tensión y basado en una historia real recuenta el increíble relato de una familia argentina, aparentemente normal, que en secreto operaba una red de secuestros. Por fuera, la familia Puccio se parece a casi cualquier otra familia. Arquímedes, el patriarca de acero, trabaja con eficiencia y sangre fría, planeando sus “golpes” meticulosamente, aunque depende, sobre todo, de su hijo mayor, un famoso miembro del equipo nacional de rugby. Alex comparte el dinero de los rescates; su madre y sus hermanos no se dan cuenta o simplemente deciden ignorar lo que sucede delante de sus narices. Sus crímenes, perpetrados después de la junta militar de los años setenta, no se distinguen de la violencia política ni de los crímenes que ésta posibilitó.  Argentina; 106 min.

Con comida donada y preparada por Betiana Simon, miembro de la Junta de Film Streams, y con una charla después de la función a cargo de Eugenio Di Stefano, profesor de OLLAS y del Departamento de Lenguas y de Literatura de UNO.
