Summary, etc.:
This award-winning documentary exposes the ever-intensifying phenomenon of enforced disappearance in Mexico. A boy and his father disappear one morning, snatched off the road by armed men. Left behind with her daughter, Lulu decides to tell the emotional story: the un-fillable void, the absence of loved ones, the unanswered questions and the suffocating silence.. After five years, absence has her living in a limbo that gives way to desire, hope and the struggle to find her nine year old son Brandon and her husband alive. This hauntingly beautiful short film illuminates the way disappearance affects women and broadens our awareness of disappearance and its social consequences in Mexico and Central America.. Winner of Best Mexican Short Film at the Guanajuato International Film Festival.
