From October 15, 1979 to January 16, 1992, El Salvador endured a civil war. More than 8000 people were forcibly disappeared, over 80,000 died, 1 million were displaced, and 500,000 were internally displaced.
The Woman in White is a short documentary, produced by Jaberi Dance Theatre, that 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.
We often hear stories of forced disappearance, but rarely do we experience them from the perspective of their families who are still searching. This film offers an intimate look into a daughter’s journey through love and loss, and her quest for justice.
Directed by Roshanak Jaberi (Canada)
