Following Antigone: Forensic Anthropology and Human Rights Investigations
Taking its title from Sophocles' play chronicling one woman's attempt to bury her dead brother in defiance of the King of Thebes, Following Antigone explores the ways in which forensic anthropology has emerged as a critical tool uncovering the truth about massacres, disappearances, and other gross violations of human rights. Utilizing footage from Argentina, El Salvador, Ethiopia, East Timor, and Haiti, Following Antigone provides an overview of the use of forensic anthropology and archaeology in human rights investigations. The film highlights the pioneering work of the Argentine Forensic Anthropology Team (EAAF), formed in 1984 to examine the disappearance of at least 10,000 Argentines during the country's last military regime.
