SYNOPSIS

Resembling a constellation of ideas and sentiments of a (still) wounded land, the taxi ride of the filmmaker through Mexico City interweaves Bernal Díaz del Castillo’s account of “The True History of the Conquest of New Spain”; from there sprouts the echoes of violence and what remains in silence.

PRESS

"Due to its experimental nature, equally remarkable on the narrative and formal levels, Streams of Silence proposes another look, another geography, where the boundaries between the personal and the political are blurred and individual and collective experience become one and the same."
