Synopsis: 

"This Academy award-nominated documentary about the Argentinian mothers’ movement to demand to know the fate of 30,000 “disappeared” sons and daughters remains as extraordinarily powerful as when it was first released. As well as giving an understanding of Argentinian history in the ‘70s and ‘80s, Las Madres shows the empowerment of women in a society where women are expected to be silent. Las Madres provides a banner of hope in the international struggle for human rights."
