Synopsis: 

Utilizing a combination of reenactments and interviews, Panamanian filmmaker Abner Benaim explores the 1989 U.S. invasion of Panama and discovers that many of his fellow countrymen seem to have somehow forgotten the event happened at all. By providing a vital exploration of an apparently willful collective amnesia, Invasion also holds a mirror to the present.
