The Woman in White

The Woman in White

This short explores the true story of a nurse and mother, Juana Irma Cisneros Ticas, who was captured and forcibly disappeared in El Salvador during the Salvadoran Civil War and features her daughter, Ana Cisneros.

From October 15, 1979 to January 16, 1992, El Salvador endured a brutal civil war. More than 8,000 people were forcibly disappeared, over 80,000 died and 1 million were displaced, internally and internationally as refugees fleeing the violence and chaos.

The film offers an intimate look into a daughter’s journey through love and loss, and her quest for justice.
