Nisman documentary tied to US conservatives

A US filmmaker known for making controversial documentaries friendly to Republican and neo-conservative causes premiered a film yesterday in Washington about the death of former special AMIA prosecutor Alberto Nisman.

Los Abandonados (The Abandoned) is directed Matthew A. Taylor and produced by Alan Peterson, both of whom have worked on several other documentaries and political ads for the Republican Political Action Committee Citizens United.

Taylor and Peterson have previously made documentaries targeting Hillary Clinton, the American Civil Liberties Union, illegal immigrants and praising conservative leaders such as Ronald Reagan.

Taylor was also involved in George W. Bush’s 2004 re-election campaign, helping produce some of the most emblematic attack ads of the campaign, including one that showed John Kerry windsurfing to illustrate his changing views.

The Herald tried for several days to contact Taylor’s media company, Electrolift Creative, members of his production team and Citizen United, but they all refused to comment.

The company’s web site states that it is a creative agency specialized in “high concept” advertisement for political and commercial purposes.
