Description

Director Ana Isabel Bustamante

Guatemala, Spain, Mexico · 2018 · Color · 79’

Fiction Film

Ana sometimes is short of breath; her mother thinks it’s because during her pregnancy, for a moment she couldn’t breathe. It was the afternoon of February 13, 1982, the day her father, Emil, was detained and disappeared. Now, amidst the silence and fear that reign in a post-war society, Ana submerges herself in the memory of those who knew her father, in the memories that have not been spoken or have been hidden, the only place where the remote possibility of finding his remains and attaining some sort of justice.

A Ana en ocasiones le falta el aire; su madre cree que es porque durante su embarazo hubo un momento en el que no pudo respirar. Fue la tarde del 13 de febrero de 1982, cuando su padre, Emil, fue detenido y desaparecido. Ahora en el silencio y el miedo que aún perduran en una sociedad de postguerra, Ana se sumerge en la memoria de sus familiares y quienes conocieron a su padre, entre los recuerdos que todavía no han pronunciado o se esconden, donde se aloja la posibilidad remota de encontrar sus restos y conseguir justicia.
