Marlén Viñayo, El Salvador, 2019, 81 min., documentay film, OV with english subtitles
Five street vendors from El Salvador – Magaly, Magda, Ruth, Chileno and Wendy – take part in a theater workshop that is much more than that: it enables them to undergo a profound transformation and to handle their experiences of violence. They become aware that they have to process their traumas in order not to pass them on to their children and to break the cycle of violence.
Theater empowers the group of women, helps them to discover their voice and to find themselves again. In sensitive images, Marlén Viñayo accompanies the women through the difficult but impressive process right up to the theater performance.
