Vicenta

Dario DORIA
Argentina 2020 69min DCP color Documentary Animation 12 Asian Premiere
Overview

Vicenta tells a story of a poor and illiterate woman who has the courage to confront the Argentine State to achieve what she knows is fair: the legal termination of her daughter´s pregnancy.

Review

To whom does the female body belong? One day, Vicenta finds out that her 19-year-old daughter with intellectual disabilities is pregnant after being raped by her uncle. She requests the court for a permit for her daughter to get an abortion, but the extremely difficult and complex administrative procedures, as well as conflicts between interest groups in political and religious circles, hinder her pursuits, even as her daughter’s stomach grows bigger. This film tells the true story of Vicenta’s struggle to fight for her daughter’s life despite being illiterate and poor, and unaided by relevant government agencies that are busy shirking responsibility. Out of ethical concerns about reenactment, the director used stop-motion animation to tell this story and focused on Vicenta’s thoughts and feelings instead of the provocative way the media handled this incident at the time using interviews and archives. On December 30, 2020, abortion became legal in Argentina through Law No. 27610. (Sung MOON)

This film is screened with Hidden of Masters Section.
