REEL Change Feature: Children of Memory

Saturday, November 17, 2018 10:00 pm-11:00 pm

November 17 @ 10pm

 

Children of Memory
Kathryn Smith Pyle (WOO '18, ACG '17, '14) and María Teresa Rodríguez (WOO '13, LTA '07)

Hundreds of children disappeared without a trace during the Salvadoran civil war. Many were survivors of massacres carried out by the U.S.-trained Salvadoran army. Taken away from the massacre sites by soldiers, some grew up in orphanages or were "sold" into adoption abroad, not knowing their true history or identity. The film follows Margarita Zamora, an investigator with human rights organization Pro-Búsqueda as she traverses the Salvadoran countryside probing memory, swabbing DNA samples, and searching for disappeared children - including her own four siblings.

Produced by Kathryn Smith Pyle and María Teresa Rodríguez; Directed by María Teresa Rodríguez
