¿Dónde estabas tú?

Marina Gilabert

This documentary short film is exquisitely beautiful and the animation is amazing; it shows a splendid cinematographic execution were the symbolic is especially taken care of, and the cultural context is so well managed that the voices of the victims resound in a planetary way. We hear them in the first person with empathy and we carefully follow the story: despite being trapped in daily patriarchal violence, they are able to erase resignation and fatalism and reconceptualise themselves as powerful.

The fact that this short film is dedicated to Carmen (Alborch, a feminist Valencian politician who passed away in 2018) has made me shed tears of emotion. Carmen would say, as we do, “feminism has not killed anyone, but male chauvinism kills every day”.
