María Cecilia Sánchez,
A personal essay which analyses and compares images of the political upheavals of the 1960s. From the military coup in Brazil to China's Cultural Revolution, from the student uprisings in Paris to the end of the Prague Spring.
What a movie! Very well documented powerful family story
Enjoy every minute of this movie. The words chosen to tell the story to the director's own voice were particularly a delicacy. I was impressed with the research work to build the story, the collection of materials, and how voices are evoked memories that touch the soul.
I read of several people in social networks that this movie has the power to connect us to Colombians/Latin Americans. I do not know if all, but me, the film connected me with the movie, with the story.
I felt in the film love, forgiveness, nostalgia, resentment, gratitude, vindication, identification, illusion, and also hatred.
Congratulations to Daniela Abad Lombana.
