A new documentary “Los Abandonados” uncovers the details of the bombing of the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) in 1994.
The project was brought to light when director Matthew Taylor found out that Alberto Nisman, the special prosecutor on the case mysteriously died hours before he was supposed to present his findings to Argentine’s Congress in January of 2015.
Allegedly Nisman was able to link Iran to the attack and he thought that the Argentinian government covered it up, according to NBC News. Nisman’s death was ruled a suicide, and though foul play has been suspected, it has not been further investigated by Argentine authorities.
The AMIA bombing occurred in July of 1994 and killed 85 people and injured many more.
The movie includes many testimonies from journalists and government officials. It premiered in Washington D.C. at the Annenberg Theater.
