“A self-promoting union leader betrays the working class by becoming a stooge of Big Capital. Based on the real case of a ‘quisling’ murdered by the Montoneros, a powerful guerilla group, The Traitors was a product of filmmaker Raymundo Gleyzer’s militant production unit Cine de la base. Gleyzer was kidnapped in May 1976, three years later, and became one of the thousands of ‘disappeared’” (Edgardo Cozarinsky). Film courtesy Juana Sapire, Untitled Document.
