synopsis

In 1986 Uruguay, following 12 years of army and police abuses during a regime of military dictatorship, society finds itself in a moment of total confusion, circumstances which the leaders of the country take advantage of by introducing the idea of a vote to pardon the criminals of the dictatorship era, an amnesty law bound to disorient the population even further. In this climate of political turmoil, two women take to the streets to film the protests and interview the Uruguayan passers-by, pulled out of their mundane routines to be asked questions about justice and peace. Their initiative represents an act of defence against propaganda and manipulation. Compiling archival news pieces and contemporary commercials, “One Or Two Questions” chronicles a society torn in two, divided by waves upon waves of varied information that has been conveniently tweaked to fit the purposes of each of the sides involved — one is calling for the punishment of those responsible, while the other prefers a complete cover-up.
