MALQUERIDAS tells the story of women living in prison in Chile while their children grow up outside. Through mobile phone videos – recorded in secret – and striking narration, their multiple voices are transformed into a dense dramaturgy. Tana Gilbert’s poignant feature-length debut allows unheard voices to speak through the simplest of means. Samay Claro

 

Notice: This film contains explicit depictions of suicide.
