The article explores the alleged political incorrectness of the film "Los rubios," directed by Albertina Carri, daughter of Peronist radical militants who disappeared in 1977. It examines what Martin Kohan identifies with Carri's shameful display of a "regimen de la descrotesia," as perhaps the film's most powerful contribution to critical thinking. Carri's film represents a new stage within a progression of cinematic interventions on behalf of the victims of state violence.
