L'Alternativa Official / Feature Films / El silencio es un cuerpo que cae


El silencio es un cuerpo que cae opens up the secrets kept by the director’s father, Jaime, as revealed by the videotapes he recorded before his death in an accident. This story of political activism and sexual dissidence offers a fascinating insight into life in Argentina between the 1970s and 1990s, peeling back layers of left-wing politics, homosexuality and Aids as it shifts between private and public spheres, intertwining the personal and the political.


Agustina Comedi (Córdoba, Argentina, 1986) studied modern literature at the Universitat Nacional de Córdoba. She attended screenwriting workshops in Buenos Aires and went on to write the screenplay for De la inteligencia de las flores (Agustina Triquell), among others. El silencio es un cuerpo que cae is her directorial debut.
