THE PHOTO OF LUZMILA

Large_film_12736277_photo1
A mix of interviews and archival documentary footage, The Photo of Luzmila explores the process of recollecting memory using photography. The camera serves as both catalyst and artistic tool of symbolic reparation for those in the center of Peru's two decades of violence. With the help of a photograph of their mother, the filmmakers therapeutically recall and reconcile their pasts.
