El silencio es un cuerpo que cae

synopsis

Out of dozens of hours of home-videos left after the death of her father, Jaime, in a car crash that took place over 20 years ago, Agustina Comedi reassembles different fragments of his past which were still left unclear to her. With the use of suggestive inserts from personal footage and interviews of different family members and friends, the director seeks to reveal first of all an aspect of his life rarely brought up by others, but, by all accounts, extremely relevant to the protagonist's personality — his homosexual relationships and affairs. This moving tribute dedicated to a man whom she only met when she was still too young to be able to understand and love him in all his complexity ends with a short dialogue on freedom between Comedi and her five years old daughter. "What does it mean to be free?" "It means you don't have to be trapped in a cage.” (Andrei Rus)
