A Place of Absence

Until there is a body they can see, touch and mourn, they live in a perpetual hell, a no man’s land, in a Place of Absence.

The film’s narrative follows the director, Marialuisa, through her personal search to find meaning in loss, which leads her to a group of Central American women called the Caravan of Mothers.

These mothers are desperately searching for their sons and daughters who have vanished en route to the U.S. By drawing parallels with her own family’s emotional turmoil in the aftermath of her uncle’s disappearance during Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’.
