La Guardería [Our House in Cuba ], a documentary film by Virginia Croatto, has just been released in Argentina. The film is about one of the places reserved for the children of Argentine Montonero fighters in the late 70s and early 80s, survivors who spent a few years of their lives in a shelter in Havana.

According to Cubadebate (in a detailed review—see link below), Cuba virtually saved them, along with their parents, from being kidnapped during the most repressive phase of the military dictatorship, which resulted in more than 30,000 dead and missing. The documentary has been awarded the first prize of Human Rights Competition at the 34th International Film Festival of Uruguay.

The group of 30 children between 8 and 10 years of age who lived there, such as the director, now remember the end of innocence and reflect on many questions about those years of uncertainty.
