Victoria Andino

Con una protagonista de una expresividad cruda y veraz, el corto plantea muchas cuestiones que trae consigo la violencia de género: el desamparo tras la huida, el maltrato de las instituciones y la falta de apoyos legales y sociales. El final, sin embargo, abrirá una senda para la resistencia y el escape demostrando que existen salidas al maltrato machista.

While selling clothes in a street market, Aldana loses her son León, who was playing on the swings in front of her. When she goes to the police station with a friend to file a complaint, the police ignore her story and she decides to go her own way to get her son back. This decision will make her face her past and the reason she run away from home, taking the child with her.

 

With a protagonist of a crude and truthful expressiveness, the short raises many questions that gender violence brings with it: the helplessness after the run away, the mistreatment of the institutions and the lack of legal and social support. The end, however, will open a path for resistance and escape, showing that there are ways out of sexist abuse.
