When They Left

by Verónica Alexandra Haro Abril

Ecuador / 00:50:00

Rosario and Rosalino, my grandparents, were born and lived in Plazuela, a small Ecuadorian town. The grandfathers have been dying, the sons migrated, and we, the grandchildren, grew up. And just like that, nowadays it has become a town inhabited only by old widows. I return to portray the life of the grandmothers, which with their memories, wisdom, and wittiness, give the meaning back to this space that will disappear along with them.

Field of Memory

by Juan Pablo González

México, Estados Unidos / 01:10:00

El Lugar de la Memoria follows the Bolaños family through their process of mourning, constructing a deep meditation on memory and grief. We hear multiple perspectives of each family member as they recount the incident of Nando’s death, the youngest son. Memories of Nando are reawakened by the sudden suicide of María F. Bolaños, Nando’s cousin. This is the second suicide in the Bolaños family and the sixth in the village of Milpillas, Jalisco.

Director: Juan Pablo González / Producer: Toiz Rodríguez / Production companies: Sin Sitio / Teonanacatl Audiovisual / Country: México, Estados Unidos / Duration: 01:10:00 / Format: HD / 4K
