La canción de los niños muertos
The Song of the Dead Children

David Pablos

Mexico, Drama, 2008
38 min, 35mm, Color
Spanish with English subtitles


My mother was murdered and my father remained alone with five children to care for. He could not offer us consolation; instead, he isolated us. He took us to the beach to pass the summer in an old cabin and that was where everything changed. My brothers and I became united by depression and alcohol. All I wanted to do was to leave that place.
