Victoria Linares Villegas discovers that she is related to a once well-known film director, Oscar Torres.

A queer filmmaker during Dominican Republic’s authoritarian 1940s, Torres was a prominent force of Carribean docufiction and leftist movements – and he was ostracised from her family.

This is the starting point for Linares Villegas’s (Ramona) wonderfully creative, filmic excavation, and her journey of kindred self-discovery. Tracing his story and defining her own, she steps into Torres’s shoes to lead a series of re-enactments of his unproduced screenplays, performed by the family who erased him – her family.

In It Runs in the Family, Linares Villegas conveys great depth with a light touch, her playful tone resonating through layers of personal and political history.
