The hope of hundreds of relatives of disappeared people lies in the work of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team, which has been identifying remains of the disappeared in several countries for 30 years. Only the restitution of the remains to their relatives can heal the open wounds.
The Memory of the Bones centers on the work done by the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team, whose task of identifying the bodies buried clandestinely by the military dictatorship is shown as continuity in the search for the children of the disappeared. A film of cinematic procedures (patience, serenity, an absence of voiceover narrative and direct interviews, a careful selection of cases and locations), but also scientific and legal ones as sharp as the former (protocols for excavating and classifying remains, techniques to convince presumed sons and daughters), it holds up as its protagonists do, tired after thirty or forty years of struggle, in the undying grief of the relatives as well as the conviction that the battle for memory is the battle for the control of the State.
