María Silvia Esteve’s Silvia attempts to make sense of a personal history steeped in violence and denial, experimenting with blurred images of the Argentine filmmaker’s parents and the inconsistent memories of her sisters. It is a portrait of the bond between a mother and her daughters, and a revelation of unspoken words that find new meanings beyond pain.
2018; Spanish with English subtitles; 103 minutes; not rated.
