El secreto de sus ojos
This month we are highlighting an Argentine, dramatic film by director Juan José Campanella.
Things to know about El secreto de sus ojos:
We care about our community and the things in their lives they may not be ready or able to discuss. This film selection includes trigger scenes, specifically sexual assault, so please proceed with care.
The film begins in 1999 as a retired judiciary employee, Benjamín Espósito (Ricardo Darín) enters the office of Judge Irene Menéndez Hastings (Soledad Villamil), who he has secretly loved for years. He tells her of his plan to write a novel about the case she oversaw and he investigated in 1974. As Benjamín begins to write the novel, the film takes us back 25 years to the series of events that unfold as he attempts to solve the rape and murder of Liliana Coloto. We look forward to creating a safe space to explore and discuss the themes of this film.
