Tucumán Kills Me. Action #3 “The Event”

Teresa Guerrero disappears in 1976 in the hands of the military junta. Almost 40 years later, a femur and a bullet-pierced hip are found in a mass grave. Her family gathers to welcome her during an anti-vigil, anti-party, and anti-burial which they call “the event,” while they hope for the recovery of the rest of her body.


Adriana Guerrero is the leader of CLADEM, a feminist organization, and a human rights activist. She works in the Human Rights Secretariat of Tucumán, Argentina. Julio Pantoja is a photo documentalist, a research professor at the Universidad Nacional de Tucumán, and an activist. He is a member of the Hemispheric Institute Council and a Hemi Senior Fellow.
