Our Mothers

Guatemala, 2018. The whole country is immersed in the trial of the soldiers who sparked the civil war. Victim statements come one after another. Ernesto is a young anthropologist working for the Forensic Foundation; his job is to identify the missing. One day, while hearing the account of an old woman, he thinks he has found a lead that might guide him to his father, a guerrillero who went missing during the war. Against his mother’s wishes, he flings himself body and soul into the case, looking for truth and resilience.

Free live stream Q&As with the director of “Our Mothers,” César Díaz, will take place on Saturday, May 2, at 7 pm EST, and Sunday May 3, at 4 pm EST, moderated by Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and Outsider Pictures team member Robert Rosenberg.
