NC Latin American Film Festival: “Without Identity”(Peru, 2014)
November 1, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This screening is part of the NC Latin American Film Festival organized by the Consortium in Latin American and Caribbean Studies.
In Without Identity, a group of forensic anthropologists digs up the corpses of eight people who disappeared without a trace 20 years ago during a violent political period in Peru. Among them, they find a ninth unidentified corpse. The only thing that can lead to the identity of the man is the vague photo of a smiling girl found in his shirt’s pocket. Fidel, a thoughtful investigator fascinated by the case, struggles to maintain a scientific approach to his work when a lonely widow shows up convinced this NN (Non Nomine) is her disappeared husband. Should he conduct a thorough investigation that may leave the widow’s plea unanswered or grant her the closure she has been searching for for decades?
This event will be introduced and is with participation of the director Hector Gálvez. It is co-sponsored by Elon University.
