Description

Twenty eight former political prisoners presented in 2011 a collective criminal complaint against a group of estate agents who, between 1972 and 1983, during the latest dictatorship in Uruguay, had an active role in the systematic tortures and rapes that took place in several holding facilities, such as Penal de Punta de Rieles, 300 Carlos or the Regimiento de Caballería Nº 9. These terrible events, suppressed  until recently, are dealt with in Manane Rodríguez’s seventh film, who is an Uruguayan filmmaker living in Spain. This may be her most personal work to date, as it tells the true story of friends of hers. It is inspired on Liliana Pereira’s case, played by Justina Bustos when she’s young and Cecilia Roth, in more recent times. She was an Arts major and mother to a baby. Liliana was kidnapped, imprisoned, raped and tortured with other women in the mid 70’s. She also lost the parenting rights over her son. After some years exiled in Spain, she feels the time has come for justice to be served and no longer be silent, just like other surviving women who lived through that hell. Film selected to represent Uruguay in the race towards the Oscar Awards.
