Damas de Blanco: Un documental del Ciro Díaz y Claudio Fuentes
Damas de Blanco
Un documental del Ciro Díaz y Claudio Fuentes
Música: Eric Sánchez
This short documentary has a cinema verite quality which interviews the Ladies in White in the midst of their weekly walk to Santa Rita Church in which they call for their loved one's freedom from unjust imprisonment. Clocking in at 10 minutes 54 seconds there is no fluff or padding but direct interviews in real time as the action takes place, and filming the surrounding environment.
Although not a political film but rather a human rights film it documents a slice of life and is worthy of a larger audience.
