Iosi, el espía arrepentido

Yosi, the Regretful Spy
In this series, creator and showrunner Daniel Burman has taken on a dark chapter in the history of his native Argentina. Inspired by real-life events, he tells the story of a young secret agent named José who infiltrates the Jewish community in Buenos Aires from the mid-1980s onwards under the code name of Iosi. Unbeknown to him, he was paving the way for two devastating terrorist attacks: the bombings of the Israeli embassy in 1992 and the AMIA building in 1994. Years later, eaten up with guilt, he tries to bring the real masterminds to justice.
After his Panorama contribution Todas las azafatas van al cielo (2002), his tragicomedy El abrazo partido (2004), which won the Grand Jury Prize and the Silver Bear for Best Actor, and his two Panorama Special opening films Derecho de familia (2006) and El rey del once (2016), Burman tells another story of Jewish life in Argentina in Iosi, el espía arrepentido. In this gripping new work he succeeds in combining a bitter tale about coming to terms with the past with a tense spy thriller.
