Director: Tatiana Huezo Run Time: 100 min. Release Year: 2011 Language: Spanish

It was during a visit to the church in her grandmother’s native village in Cinquera, El Salvador that Tatiana Huezo was inspired to make this film about the legacy of the civil war that tore the country apart from 1979 to 1991. The call to war had been launched from Cinquera. Pieces of a combat helicopter and portraits of young villagers who were killed decorate the church,  acting as  emblems of this violent history… Huezo filmed the village, the survivors, surrounding mountains, forests, and caves, and collected their memories of enduring, witnessing, and surviving in this marvelously edited film.

Directed & Written by: Tatiana Huezo Sanchez (El Salvador/Mexico)
