Shrewds The Madres Poster_sm.jpg

It’s 1978 in Buenos Aires and people are disappearing right off the street. What would you do? Look away? Or march against the oppression? As a divisive government turns neighbor against neighbor, Carolina risks everything to search for her pregnant daughter, Belén. While Carolina marches, her mother receives a surprise visit from someone who may hold the key to finding her. Together, they come up with a plan to bring Belén and her unborn child home. Will it work? Will they save her? Will they save themselves?

Set against the backdrop of La Dictadura in Argentina, where over 30,000 “subversives” including students, artists, journalists, political activists, and the brave mothers looking for their loved ones were disappeared by their own government, The Madres examines one family’s desperate fight, and the strength and endurance of the women known as Las Madres. Las Madres broke the silence against this oppressive regime in the 1970s, and they are still marching to this day.
