The winner of the Cannes Film Festival’s prestigious Camera d’Or, OUR MOTHERS is a gripping and powerfully emotional work by filmmaker César Diaz. Decades after Guatemala’s terrible civil war of the 1980s, a young forensic anthropologist works tirelessly to find the remains of the missing. When an elderly woman’s witness statement convinces him that he has found the key to discovering the fate of his long-lost father, he investigates against the strenuous wishes of his mother, and uncovers a terrible and shocking truth.
