Filmmaker

Filmmaker Matthew Taylor was knee-deep on a project that was supposed to be his directorial debut when he learned of the death of Argentine prosecutor Alberto Nisman, a special prosecutor appointed to investigate a 1994 terrorist attack on a Jewish community center in Argentina.

Nisman’s sudden death prompted Taylor to drop everything and shift his complete focus to the project that became “Los Abandonados,” a documentary film about the investigation of the 1994 AMIA bombing that claimed the lives of 85 people and injured numerous others.

“It was an interesting story that needed to be told,” said Taylor, prior to a screening of the film at the Center for Jewish History, hosted by The Algemeiner. The film claims that the 1994 bombing, the worst terrorist attack in the Western Hemisphere until 9/11, was motivated by a nuclear arms deal with Iran gone bad.
