Contra el silencio todas las voces

In collaboration with Casa Amèrica Catalunya, the two-yearly Mexican festival Contra el Silencio todas la Voces presents a selection of award-winning documentaries from 2012 at l’Alternativa.

These independent films present a range of different perspectives from across Latin America: documentaries that give a voice to former political prisoners who have seen their erstwhile women’s prison turned into a luxury mall; stories of the everyday lives of young urban indigenous people striving to keep their culture alive in the city; and tales of residents fighting the environmental degradation of their land in Spain or Guatemala. Behind all these stories are original independent filmmakers brandishing a camera and breaking the silence.

In collaboration with Casa Amèrica Catalunya.
