    • Desarme (Disarmament) is the Argentine documentary film that won the V Doctv Latin America.


      It was broadcasted in September 2016 in 20 Latin American public TV channels.

      Desarme tells the story of the Marcenac family, who in June 2006, had their son killed by a serial shooter in a centric neighborhood in Buenos Aires.

      After this tragedy, Adrián y Mónica Marcenac started to promote a campaign against the use of arms by civilians, confronting arm manufacturers, the judiciary and the Argentine State.

      The Marcenac family, together with the Red Argentina para el Desarme (Argentine Network for Disarmament) managed to get the National Voluntary Arm Surrender Plan approved, which made it possible for 300,000 arms to be destroyed.

      They also fought another big battle against arm manufacturers, who financially controlled the Registro Nacional de Armas (National Arm Registry, RENAR). They achieved their goals after a ten-year fight.

      Adrián and Mónica also confronted the judiciary, because their son’s murderer was declared immune from prosecution by the court.

      Desarme is the story of two regular persons who, after facing a great loss, decide to start a ten-year fight against arm manufacturers and the Argentine State.
