Director:Lucia Murat
Writer:Lucia Murat

Description: This groundbreaking film -- a blend of fictionalized accounts and documentary -- chronicles the political oppression and systematic torture following the overthrow of the Brazilian government by a military coup on March 31, 1964. Director Lucia Murat, a survivor herself of imprisonment and torture, breaks the silence surrounding the violence that occurred under the dictatorship. Eight women who were also held as political prisoners during the dictatorship share their personal memories, and their stories are framed by the fictionalized experience of an anonymous character, played by Irene Ravache. A winner of multiple awards, including Best Film at the Festival de Brasilia and the Special Jury Prize at the Rio International Film Festival, Murat's extraordinary film illuminates the prisoners' struggle to survive an experience that has been shrouded in silence.~ Carrie Downes, All Movie Guide
