OUR MOTHERS

NUESTRAS MADRES

a film by :César Díaz

Guatemala, 2018. The whole country is immersed in the trial of the soldiers who sparked the civil war. Victim statements come one after another. Ernesto is a young anthropologist working for the Forensic Foundation; his job is to identify the missing. One day, while hearing the account of an old woman, he thinks he has found a lead that might guide him to his father, a guerrillero who went missing during the war. Against his mother’s wishes, he flings himself body and soul into the case, looking for truth and resilience.

French Synopsis :

Guatemala, 2018. Le pays vit au rythme du procès des militaires à l’origine de la guerre civile. Les témoignages des victimes s’enchaînent. Ernesto, jeune anthropologue à la Fondation médico-légale, travaille à l’identification des disparus. Un jour, à travers le récit d’une vieille femme, il croit déceler une piste qui lui permettra de retrouver la trace de son père, guérillero disparu pendant la guerre. Contre l’avis de sa mère, il plonge à corps perdu dans le dossier, à la recherche de la vérité et de la résilience.
