Nisman - Part 1

Nisman - Part 1

The critically acclaimed true crime docu-series that ignited a firestorm. 

In July 1994, a suicide bomb exploded outside the Jewish Community Centre in Buenos Aires, killing 85 people and injuring hundreds in what was Argentina’s deadliest terror attack. 21 years later, the body of Jewish federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman was found at his apartment, a mere few hours before he was due to testify against Argentina’s former President Cristina Kirchner, whom he had accused of covering up Iran’s culpability. Initially treated as suicide, a subsequent investigation tried to establish that Nisman had been murdered, with all fingers pointed to Kirchner. This gripping six-part documentary series recounts in forensic detail Argentinian Jews’ twofold tragedy, a true story steeped in high-level conspiracy, corruption and yet to be resolved mystery.

JIFF presents all episodes of this gripping six-part documentary series that details the suspicious death of Jewish federal prosecutor Alberto Nisman, the investigator of the 1994 bombing of a Jewish community centre in Buenos Aires. A must-see for lovers of true crime documentaries, Nisman recounts in forensic detail Argentinian Jews’ twofold tragedy, and a true story steeped in high-level conspiracy, corruption and yet to be resolved mystery.

Nisman: The Prosecutor, the President and the Spy will screen in two parts: episodes 1-3 will play in part 1, and episodes 4-6 will play in part 2. Regular ticket prices apply.
