70 y Pico

From the harsh and elemental question which points to know the reasons why certain people tried to kill grandfather Pico, the documentary, directed by his grandson, explores the public life of architect Héctor Mario Corbacho, who was the controller Dean of The UBA’s Architecture and Urbanism University during the last civil and military dictatorship in Argentina (1976-83). Pierced by an affective contradiction that involves to face the dark past of a loved one, the discussion over how many images of a single person can live in oneself will be the central thread.
