2 editions published in 2010 in Spanish and held by 12 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Benjamín Espósito acaba de jubilarse después de trabajar toda una vida como empleado en un Juzgado Penal. Para ocupar su tiempo libre decide escribir una novela basada en una historia real de la que ha sido testigo y protagonista: un terrible asesinato ocurrido en Buenos Aires en 1974, y la investigación para hallar al culpable. Pero una vez abierta la puerta de ese pasado, al propio Espósito se le volverá imposible cerrarla. Primero, porque la turbulenta Argentina de entonces se cuela en la vida de los personajes, con su carga de violencia y de muerte. Y, sobre todo, porque su búsqueda ilumina de un modo descarnado su propia vida y su presente, y lo pone de frente con un dilema de amor que lo obsesiona desde hace demasiado tiempo. Reconstruir el pasado lo conducirá a bucear en sus propios sentimientos, sus propias conductas y decisiones. Y hallar la verdad terminará por convertirse no en un objetivo literario, sino en la llave que le permita abrir la puerta para vivir el resto de su vida

1987/88, nach seiner Rückkehr aus dem Exil, hat Fernando Solanas den Spielfilm "Sur" realisiert. Ein Schlüsselwerk des jüngeren politischen Kinos genausosehr wie ein melancholischer Liebesfilm. Die Zeit der Finsternis in Argentinien wird noch einmal durchquert und damit auch ein stückweit bewältigt. Floréal (Miguel Angel Sola), die Hauptfigur in diesem Film, ist einer, der im Land geblieben war, der verschleppt wurde und die fünf Jahre in Gefangenschaft in Patagonien überlebt hat. Er kehrt nach dem Ende der Diktatur heim zu Rosi (Suso Pecoraro), seiner Frau, und zu seinem sechsjährigen Sohn, den er erst noch kennenlernen muss. Statt der Freude über die langersehnte Rückkehr überkommt ihn die Angst vor dem Wiedersehen nach all den Jahren. Die Geschichte hat Spuren hinterlassen, im privaten wie im öffentlichen Raum. Der Schmerz der Trennungen sitzt tief. "Sur" lässt diese Spuren aufscheinen und die Hoffnungen aufleben, die Floréal in den Tagesanbruch begleiten und sein Gesicht mit jenem seiner Frau in einer wortlosen Einstellung wieder eins werden lassen. (, 7.3.11)
