LAS MADRES DE PLAZA DE MAYO

Part of Triple Bill: A Day For Argentina: Hour Of The Furnaces + Las Madres De Plaza De Mayo + Argentine Voices
Dir: Susana Blaustein Munoz & Lourdes Portillo
Argentina / 1986 / 64mins

This Academy award-nominated documentary about the Argentinian mothers' movement to demand to know the fate of 30,000 "disappeared" sons and daughters remains as extraordinarily powerful as when it was first released. As well as giving an understanding of Argentinian history in the '70s and '80s, LAS MADRES shows the empowerment of women in a society where women are expected to be silent. LAS MADRES provides a banner of hope in the international struggle for human rights.

"A testimony to the most primal feminist power—the moral authority of motherhood...The miracle of the film is that it doesn't merely leave you with sorrow or outrage, but with humanistic fervor." - San Francisco Examiner
