Laura Gauch


The filmmaker takes us on an explorative journey to find out more about her mother’s family. Part of them had to flee Chile in 1973 during the Military Coup, since they had a close connection to the former president Salvador Allende. Through fragmented memories, we accompany her cousin Lua, who faces the uncertainty of who she is and asks questions about the family’s history. How does this generation deal with the past and how does it continue to shape their identity?
