Our Mothers

Our Mothers is a film in awe of the strength of women.

It follows the main character, a forensic anthropologist, who is responsible for identifying the dead when they are unearthed from the mass graves created under the military dictatorship and genocide in the 80s. He helps a woman retrieve the bones of her husband, while he himself searches for the body of his father, whom he never knew.

It is a one-act story, in which the ghosts of the past finally come home. It is a story that venerates the women who endured the unendurable and somehow still had the love to build a future for others. A film of quiet, underappreciated dignity.
