THE SILENCE OF THE FLIES
Eliezer Arias | Venezuela 2015 | 92 Min. | OmeU
Marcelina and Mercedes live in different villages at Venezuelan Andes. They share a tragic story: their daughters committed suicide, like many did the last years in these surroundings. Through their memories of loss and grief, the film takes us into a world of tangible pain where silence became a significant feature of this idyllic but violent natural setting.Life stories, psychological autopsies, evocative objects and art intermingle in The Silence of the Flies, a documentary that follows the everyday life of people that dwell in a world of guilt and pain where silence in vain aspires to make them forget.
