    • Synopsis
    • Remembering is recognizing that something is no longer ours. This documentary is the story of people who need to remember a specific ‘last moment’, to remember everything.
      Agustín Goiburú was the most important Paraguayan political opponent to the Stroessner regime in Paraguay. He disappeared in 1976 in Paraná, in the province of Entre Ríos, Argentina, where he was exiled.
      We intend to enter a whole political context through the memories of Agustín Goiburú´s three sons: Rogelio, Jazmín and Rolando. We will rebuild the last images of their father they have. This is how we begin an intimate memory exercise, telling the story of a whole country for the past 35 years.
