Portraits of my Mother
Tavo Ruiz | Mexico | Documentary | 2018 | 11 min
This is a documentary about my mother and the moment that changed her life. Through her narration, my mother confesses to me what she remembers from the moment she was raped as a child. By painfully recalling this traumatic event, she reflects on the sexual abuse of children and the scars that these events leave in a person’s life.
