Children of Memory / Niños de la Memoria
US + El Salvador 2012 64 min
Producers Kathryn Pyle and María Teresa Rodríguez
Director María Teresa Rodríguez
Editor Ann Tegnell
During the Salvadoran civil war of the 1980s, hundreds of children disappeared. Many were survivors of massacres, taken by U.S.-trained soldiers of the Salvadoran Army and permanently separated from their communities and identities. Now, a human rights organization called Pro-Búsqueda is helping to reunite these children with their families. This documentary follows survivors of the war to the present, revealing a heartbreaking search to reclaim former bonds and identities in a country slowly healing itself from the scars of war.

It’s a play, within a documentary, within a film.
A theater company rehearses Macbeth. A documentary film crew follows them during the rehearsal process. Occasionally the actors become lost in Shakespeare’s world. The drama of the play intertwines with the drama of making the film like two mobius loops (or serpents) wrapped together.
Intense drama, dance and humor – a refreshing take on Shakespeare’s classic text.
If you missed the May 1st advance screening of Niños de la Memoria in Philadelphia, you may have to wait a bit more to see what editor Ann Tegnell and her colleagues have been crafting the past few years.
But, thanks to the screening sponsors PIFVA and Scribe Video Center, you can see excerpts from the subsequent discussion of the film and it’s issues. The panel consists of producers Kaye Pyle and María Rodríguez, film participants Jamie Harvey and Leonor Arteaga, and activist Jennifer Cox. Elisabeth Perez Luna moderated.
PIFVA has prepared and posted the clip here.
