SISTERS

  • Drama
  • | 2005

Directed by Julia Solomonoff

In 1976, during the political turmoil in Argentina, two sisters flee their country right after Natalia’s politically active boyfriend Martin disappears; one goes to Spain, and the other to Texas, United States.

After eight years in Spain, Natalia travels to Texas to visit her sister Elena, who’s now a suburban wife and mother. She brings with her their father’s manuscript of his last novel. The unpublished book reveals the story of their family during the Argentine dictatorship. Using extensive flashbacks of the sisters early years in Argentina during the “junta” dictatorship, the director reveals family guilt and suppressed resentment.
