The Clan tells the true story of a middle-class family pulled into a world of kidnapping, ransom, and murder by its charismatic patriarch. As a member of the secret police of the Videla military regime of the late 70s and early 80s, it was Arquímedes Puccio’s job to kidnap dissidents during the reign of terror when more than 30,000 citizens simply “disappeared.” But after the fall of the regime, the upper middle class Puccio kept right on going, kidnapping his rich neighbors and demanding huge ransoms – and then killing the victims even after the ransoms were paid. Trapero tackles the notorious tale of violence and family bond with keen attention to the details of a tale at once alluring and repelling. (110 mins.)

Filmography: White Elephant (2012), Carancho (2010), Rolling Family (2004)

Interests: Oscar Submissions.
