An Unknown Enemy (Spanish: Un Extraño Enemigo) is a 2018 web television political thriller and drama series released on Amazon Prime.
It examines the events leading to the 1968 student massacre and its cover-up, through the eyes of Commander Fernando Barrientos, head of a secret intelligence agency.
The series main character is loosely based on the real life Fernando Gutiérrez Barrios, director of the infamous DFS intelligence Agency, and depicts the political intrigues that triggered the period of censorship and repression of students at the end of the 1960s.
The guerrillas make their first blows and Barrientos seeks to manipulate this new enemy to his advantage. However, the violence gets out of control, and President Echeverría appoints the army to take charge of the anti-guerrilla struggle.
