Verdades verdaderas, la vida de Estela

Synopsis: In 1976, a coup d'etat by the Armed Forces replaced the argentine constitutional Government and policies of terror that trampled on human rights were implemented. In a few years, the hidden and silent violence of these policies spiraled and 30,000 citizens of different ages and social conditions were murdered. They were wrongly called the disappeared and, among them, there were young children or unborn young who were delivered in prisons of the military dictatorship and whose kidnappers abducted and registered as their own children. This movie tells the story of Estela Barnes Carlotto, a human rights activist in Argentina, chairwoman of the Association of Grandmothers of the Plaza de Mayo, who stopped being a housewife to get involved in public affairs after the kidnap of her daughter, Laura Estela Carlotto in 1977. The film is about the way her life was transformed. The quest of a wife, a mother, a grandmother. A fight for ideals of justice, for reconciliation, for reunions. Estela's

What are you doing here?

And it ever snow here?

No, it doesn't!

And is it ever gonna snow?


Never, ever?

Never, ever, at all.

The kids have come

to play with you, they're having their

milk, let's go.

Yes, let's go.

Sometimes they ask me how I can love

someone so much without knowing him,

without knowing what he feels, when he

laughs, why he suffers.

I try to imagine your face;

I try on mouths, eyes, gestures.

I think that you can be walking right

next to me on the street, watching the

same TV show or listening to the same


That day, there were no further doubts.

You are somewhere!

You were born on June 26, 1978, your

name has been Guido for 32 years and I

miss you...

TRUE TRUTHS. Estela's life

Headquarters of Grandmothers of the Plaza

de Mayo Association, Buenos Aires 2009

Let's go...

Come on. Yummy!

Come on.

Are we ready? Here, boy, you're younger;

you take care of it...

You evil kid, you're leaving! You're

leaving us!

Hey, I have the right to take a

vacation; I deserve it, don't I?

OK, he's not going to Siberia. Bring

salami before coming!

Exactly, it's good for one's cholesterol

Do I have something here?

I am looking great! Soon I'll go under

the knife for a complete makeover, I'll

meet a young man, you'll see.

What do you think?

There's something,

There's old age, Teresa!

Would you pass the stapler,

I'll fix it...

If she doesn't have a man, she's

not happy...

But you look like girls, you look great!

Come on!

The fact that there is no information

does not mean that the trial is


Shush, here comes the Headmistress.

That's right, silence means that the

Grandmothers are working.

No, they are not celebrating that

here... all right, all right, goodbye,

dear, happy New Year.

Stop it! You have nothing there.

Shall we toast or what?

Cheers, cheers, happy New Year!

Happy new year for everyone!

Dear Guido...

No, you may not.

Just thank you then.

How many times are you gonna toast?

Look at this last bit, it'd be a pity.

Just a little bit, a little bit

And how was your interview? They kept

you there for like 3 hours.

It lasted for ages! There are people who

think that the Grandmothers are getting

more politicized!

Who thinks that?

I ask. Do you think that?

And the

answer is no, no, no, no, no, no, no,

no, no.

Ok, then, and then we started

talking, but it was long, very long.

Are you gonna drive to Ranchos

like that?

Why not, eh?

Why don't you leave with

Claudia, too?

I'm OK here.

This one will be our year, you'll see.

Nothing... I think the same every year.

It will happen someday, right?

Of course it will.

Mi grandma makes an amazing

vitello tonnato.


I'll bring you some in a Tupper.

Please do, because last year...

No, no, no, no.

See you next year! I cease to exist

for 20 days, is that clear?

Do it while you can.

OK, and you guys, behave. Get drunk but

with moderation, all right?

And turn off

her lights or she'll stay until the Magi


I can't believe that

woman, for the love of God!


Bye, Abelito.

Have a nice trip!


Hi, err...

How can we help you?

Well, er...

Oh, oh, all right.

You know, I called a washing machine

repairman and again, he hasn't come, but

a week ago...

Was it this one?

Yeah, that one.

That wine is so tasty.

Mom, mother, but...

I'll get one for you.

Sit down, mom, I'm OK.

Sit down, mom. I'm OK but... my coffee.

You took my coffee. She's taking, she's

taking my coffee. Mom!

What time are you leaving, guys?

We must be there at 12.30, tops.

Remo, would you open this?
