Esto no es un golpe
This Is Not a Coup
Cinema in Democracy
After winning the 1983 elections, ending seven years of dictatorship, and after promoting the historic Trial of the Military Juntas in 1985, during Easter Week of 1987, Raúl Alfonsín's government was shaken by a military uprising led by Aldo Rico. Both an enormous mass mobilization and the entire political arc supported Alfonsín. This growing tension was resolved on Easter Sunday during a meeting that the President held with the military rebels. The meeting became an enigma, since the speech given by Alfonsín in Plaza de Mayo raised the question of whether he had negotiated with the rebels. What happened in that meeting? Why did Alfonsín say what he said in that speech?.
