18 – J


18 – J (July 18th) is a 35mm feature film of 100 minutes long made up of 10 short films of 10 minutes long each. 10 stories told by 10 filmmakers and produced by 10 production companies as a tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack on AMIA.
The selection of the filmmakers was based on wide criteria, including famous and novel directors coming from different genres and styles who join in an intense and productive look that represents the present situation of the cinema in Argentina.
18 – J is a non-profit project. All funds raised will be to the benefit of 10 public welfare organizations.

On July 18th, 1994, a bomb exploded at the building of the Argentine-Israeli Mutual Association (AMIA) located in the center of Buenos Aires, capital city of Argentina.
AMIA was founded over a century ago as a mutual association, a non-profit organization which mission is to provide social services, care to aged and handicapped people, spread culture and improve jewish and non-jewish community’s life.
The terrorist attack on the AMIA Building took place a few days before the centennial of the institution and left a toll of 85 dead people.
We still don’t know how and why it happened what it happened.
The argentine cinema community has decided to make this film as a tribute to the victims and thus, to reaffirm the need to find the truth.
Because it is impossible to build a future without memory.

The Filmmakers


Filmmaker and producer. He made his first feature film when he was 22 and set up his own production company (BD Cine) together with Diego Dubcovsky. His last film, “El Abrazo Partido”, won two Silver Bears for Best Film and Best Actor at Berlin Festival 2004.

Story Line: A doctor tells about a child’s birth in 1994. 10 years later, that child is walking around Once, a neighborhood of Buenos Aires, and is showing the consequences left by the terrorist attack.


Filmmaker. He began his career as filmmaker codirecting with Bruno Stagnaro “Pizza, birra, faso”. His next films, “Bolivia” and “Un oso rojo” competed in Cannes. He also works as a TV director.

Story Line: The very moment before the explosion and the very heart of the explosion. The horror shown in 10 minutes which seem to stop in the wind, the fire, the ground and the rubble.


She was born in Argentina and went into exile in France in 1976 when she was very young. She went to Sorbonne University. Nowadays, she works as a scriptwriter and a producer. “Ausencia”, her first short film, won a Silver Bear at Berlin Festival.

Story Line: The story of the Jewish people looking for a place to build their own story and put down their roots told by an old retired couple who are preparing their travel to Israel to visit their daughter who lives there since 1976 when she went into exile for political reasons.

Alejandro DORIA

He makes his debut as a TV director in the 70s and is one of the most prolific and prize-winning TV and film directors of Argentina. He has achieved wide popular recognition. Some of his films are “Esperando la Carroza”, “Los miedos” and “Darse cuenta”.

Story Line: Ana goes over the events after the terrorist attack and her voice says what everybody would know if they had wanted to. She couldn’t help reading, reflecting, researching, deciding that such impunity could not be tolerated.

Alberto LECCHI

He works as an assistant director in over 40 feature films. He begins his career as scriptwriter and filmmaker in 1993. He won many international and local prizes for his films among which are: “Perdido por perdido”, “Nueces para el amor” and “El Juego de Arcibel”.

Story Line: In Humahuaca, 1,800 km away from Buenos Aires, a woman hears about the terrorist attack which has occurred in a neighborhood of Buenos Aires where her eldest son lives as he has come to this city looking for a job. A tense wait faces the little town with the fears of the big city, the terrorism and racial hate.


Producer and filmmaker. He begins his career as an assistant director, TV director, scriptwriter and a teacher. He has produced many features films, such as “Un día de suerte” and “Soy tu aventura”. As filmmaker, he has made “Breccia x cuatro” and “Che, un hombre de este mundo”

Story Line: The Cohen family is discussing Ezequiel’s “decision”. Prisoner of his own religious doubts, he doesn’t want to celebrate his bar-mitzvah. But the explosion, which takes place at that very moment, makes him feel as if God has answered to his rebelliousness.

Carlos SORÍN

He begins his career as an assistant director and director of photography in Advertising and feature films. His advertising production company has made over 1,200 commercials and won many international prizes. It is a leading company in Argentina. Carlos Sorín makes his debut as a filmmaker with the feature film “La Película del Rey” and after his film “Historias Mínimas” he becomes an international renowned film director.

Story Line: Victims’ faces from their family pictures. A tribute to the victims of the terrorist attack who stop being a number and take shape before our eyes.

Juan Bautista STAGNARO

Scriptwriter and filmmaker. He has directed some films such as “Camino al Sur”, “Casas de Fuego”, “El Amateur”, and “El Séptimo Arcángel”. He was president of Associations of Directors (DAC) and nowadays, he devotes his time to filmmaking, fiction writing and teaching.

Story Line: CIRO tries to read the “Divine Comedy” on his way to school for an exam. Dante’s verses which were written seven hundred years before that morning, are resounding in his head. Those verses will suddenly become out of time, vanished, immaterial as a brutal, incomprehensible event takes place.

Adrián SUAR

Actor, producer and filmmaker. He began his career as an actor at the age of 13 and when he was 26, he set up his own production company, Pol-ka Producciones, together with Fernando Blanco, which became the turning point in film and TV making in Argentina.

Story Line: Carla and Gustavo are preparing for their child’s circumcision ceremony. Fernando, the godfather, doesn’t arrive and they have to begin the ritual. While everybody is attending this special occasion, nobody can imagine that Fernando won’t never come.

Mauricio WAINROT

Mauricio Wainrot is the Artistic Director of the Contemporary Ballet Company of Teatro San Martín in Buenos Aires and Permanent Choreographer of the Royal Ballet of Flanders in Belgium. For the last 15 years, Mr. Wainrot’s works have been shown in over 40 international companies.

Story Line: The idea of expressing ourselves through the language of dance and the story of inexorable death, and the absence of those who are gone. Time of a memory that carries on with that painful experience on its back and reappears from emptiness.
