Honoring Missing 2002 : Invitation

The Charles Horman Truth Project invites you to support and recognize artists whose work helps reveal the truth surrounding human rights crimes. This year we are commemorating the anniversary of MISSING, the most influential human rights film of the past twenty years, and honoring the people who made it.

Twenty-nine years ago, Charles Horman, an American journalist/filmmaker, was taken by force from his home in Santiago, Chile, imprisoned in the National Stadium and executed by Agusto Pinochet's military. His family's struggle to find the truth behind his disappearance and death was the inspiration for the film MISSING, starring Jack Lemmon and Sissy Spacek.

Charles' murder and the search for those responsible for his and other executions led to the founding of the Charles Horman Truth Project in 1998. The Project Supports research and investigations to identify those responsible for atrocities committed during the Pinochet era and to bring them to justice. Proceeds from this event will support the Charles Horman Truth Project efforts in Chile.

This year's event will be held on the day that would have been Charles' 60th birthday.

Special thanks to Human Rights Watch for their support, and to the Center for Constitutional Rights, the Institute for Policy Studies, Amnesty International USA, and the Lawyers Committee for Human Rights for their special endorsements.

The movie MISSING could not have been made without the staunch support and backing of UNIVERSAL PICTURES. Not only did the studio decide to make a movie that pulled no punches, but it also stood by the film throughout its production and release. By standing on principle and believing in the filmmakers, Universal Pictures displayed its commitment to integrity and filmmaking excellence, which it continues to show today. We are enormously grateful to Universal and extremely honored to recognize the courage of everyone involved in the making of the film on the evening of May 15th when we commemorate MISSING for its 20 years of speaking the truth.
