Una muerte y un nacimiento // A death and a birth

A short film that tells the story of my family on my mum’s side being forced to leave Argentina in the 70’s during the Videla dictatorship that gripped the country for over 6 years. Using conversations with each family member, I let them narrate their own story, accompanying their words with family photographs from the period and other related imagery to illustrate their struggle during this time. This story is one of many from this period, with thousands of people making the same journey across the world to escape the horrors of ‘la junta militar’ and the military dictatorship in Argentina.
