    2011. Argentina/Mexico. Written and directed by Paula Markovitch. With Paula Galinelli Hertzog, Sharon Herrera, Laura Agorreca. During the years of Argentine dictatorship and its notorious Dirty War (1975–83), an anxious young mother and her precocious daughter flee Buenos Aires for the temporary seclusion of a ramshackle cottage on a remote beach. What begins as a childhood idyll is soon contaminated by the larger political crisis. Markovitch draws on her own experiences to capture the lacunae of childhood’s social and psychological worlds in this exquisitely acted, atmospheric drama about innocence in tumultuous times. In Spanish; English subtitles. 99 min.
