A magical and profoundly gripping portrayal of life as a refugee

LOS SILENCIOS follows a widow and her children who’ve fled the civil war in Colombia and taken refuge in La Isla de la Fantasia on the Colombia-Brazil-Peru border, where mysticism permeates the local culture. Linking age-old cultural traditions with current events, Beatriz Seigner has crafted a fantastic film which places its characters between worlds, slowly building up to a climax which is as gripping as it is magical. LOS SILENCIOS is a uniquely insightful exploration of what it means to be a refugee.

LOS SILENCIOS is in our main competition programme for international fiction, Cinema Extraordinaire.
