THE SILENCE OF THE FLIES

Motion Film Documentary

 

Venezuela, 2013

Synopsis: Marcelina (48) and Mercedes (56) live un neighbour villages of agricultural communities in the Venezuelan Andes. They share the same tragic story: their daughters have committed suicide, just like so many have done in these surroundings during the last years. Through their memories of loss and grief, the film takes us into a world of tangible pain where silence has become a very significant feature of this idylic and yet violent natural setting.

 

Life stories, psychological autopsies, evocative objects and art intermingle in The Silence of the Flies, an essay documentary that follows the everyday life of people that dwell in a world of guilt and tangible pain where silence in vain aspires to make them forget.
