Former Argentine prosecutor Luis Moreno Ocampo, who served as deputy prosecutor in Argentina's Trial of the Juntas and later as the first prosecutor of the International Criminal Court, is portrayed in the film "Argentina, 1985," which won the Golden Globe for Best Motion Picture in a Non-English Language this week. The film dramatizes the efforts of Argentina's civilian court to prosecute the country's former military leaders for brutal crimes committed during the U.S.-backed right-wing military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. Ocampo spoke to Democracy Now! recently about that landmark trial, the new film and why "democracy is at risk everywhere."
