Admission Information:
University of North Carolina School of Journalism and Mass Communication professor C.A. Tuggle has won an international Indie Award of Excellence for his documentary film “Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo and the Search for Identity”.

Tuggle’s film tells the story of Las Abuelas de Plaza de Mayo, an Argentinian human rights organization of grandmothers committed to finding their lost grandchildren, who they believe were stolen by their country’s government some 30 years ago.
Other Details:
At least 10,000 — and some estimate as many as 30,000 — dissidents of the military dictatorship were kidnapped, tortured and killed during Argentina's Dirty War from 1976-1983. Those kidnapped became known as Los Desaparecidos or “the disappeared.” Some of the women were pregnant or new mothers when captured, and infants ended up in homes of people sympathetic to the regime.
