Our Mothers

Guatemala, 2018. The country is riveted to the trial of the military officers who sparked off the civil war. The victims’ testimonials keep pouring in. Ernesto, a young anthropologist at the Forensic Foundation, identifies the remains of those who have gone missing. One day, through an old lady’s story, Ernesto thinks he has found a lead that will allow him to find his father, a guerillero who disappeared during the war. A political and moving gaze on the painful history of the Guatemalan people.
