‘The Subversives’ tells the little known story of UN Director of Human Rights Theo van Boven (1977-1982) who investigates the disappearances by military dictatorships of South America and worldwide, eventually confronts the US and the UN Secretary General, and changes the face of human rights protection worldwide. Featuring van Boven as well as figures such as Judge Baltasar Garzón, it also details disappearances under Spain’s Franco, who inspired dictators such as Pinochet in Chile. The film also follows a Valencian woman in her search for the truth about her father’s disappearance under Franco.
Having presold to Spain, the Netherlands and Ireland, the film has also been licensed to Juno Pictures for a theatrical release in the US and Canada in 2019.
