Rental Format(s): DVD

A documentary film about an Argentine army officer who discovers the secret police use of political prisoners for sex exploitation film purposes and protests after the murder of a young girl.

"La soiree terminera dans le sang avec LE PAIEMENT DE TERESA VIDELA une seance de torture dans une quelconque dictature d'Amerique du Sud. Douze minutes de sadisme, un documentaire insoutenable qui reconstitue des faits reels, une 'bavure' a la dimension chilienne. Incroyable, bestial, inhumain, et pourtant, cela se passe la-bas du cote de Buenos Aires ou Santiago ...." - La Voix Du Nord
