La palabra en el bosqueThe Word in the Woods

Jeffrey Gould, Carlos Henriquez

El Salvador/USA, Human Rights Documentary, 201156 min, DVCAM/35mm, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

During the early 1970s, hundreds of peasants in a remote region of El Salvador began to emulate the early Christians, working the land together and building communities based on solidarity. By the late 1970s, thousands of peasants in northern Morazan organized to resist National Guard repression, which often involved torture and executions. In the 1980s, the military engaged in scorched earth operations against their villages, inaugurating a 12-year civil war. La palabra en el bosque tells their stories, placing them in context within the light of current reality.

María en tierra de nadie Maria in Nobody's Land

Marcela Zamora Chamorro

El Salvador/Guatemala/Mexico, Human Rights Documentary, 2010 86 min, MiniDV, Color Spanish with English subtitles

 

This documentary shows the parallel immigration stories of three Salvadoran women on a journey through Mexico. Doña Inés, a 60 year-old woman, is searching for her daughter who went missing shortly after she decided to immigrate to the US five years ago. Marta and Sandra, tired of the domestic violence they endured at home and hoping to overcome their impoverished lives, decide to make the trip through Mexico with only thirty dollars in their pockets. These women, Doña Inés' daughter, and countless other immigrant women face prostitution, human trafficking, rape, kidnap, and even death on a journey not often brought up in immigration debates.

 

North American Premiere

Marcela Zamora studied journalism in Costa Rica and went on to study film at the International School of Film and Television of San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba (EICTV). María en tierra de nadie is her first feature documentary.
