"Silent Beauty" Sponsored by The Stone Center for Latin American Studies
This is a personal documentary that follows director Jasmin López as she works to heal from child sexual abuse she endured at the hands of her grandfather, Gilberto, almost 30 years ago. In the process of sharing her own trauma with her large family, Jasmin learns that generations of children in her family were victims of the same abuse. Told from the director’s perspective, Silent Beauty is a film about confronting and accepting difficult truths while finding beauty in the process.
"It Runs in the Family" Sponsored by Caribbean and Cuban Studies Institute
A revelation about Oscar Torres, her unknown and once world-famous queer filmmaker cousin, sends Victoria down a path of self-discovery through reconstructions of his intimate memories living in the 1950s authoritarian Caribbean, as Victoria leads re-enactments of his unproduced screenplays with the family who erased him.
