Paula Luttringer

THE WAILING OF THE WALLS (2000)

Paula Luttringer recorded the testimony of fifty women who had been abducted and imprisoned under the regime of the Argentine dictator Videla. She accompanied them with photographs of the about 350 clandestine prisons that Argentina had during the years 1976-1983. After the fall of the dictatorship the policemen and soldiers responsible were given amnesty. The consequence was that many women, particularly in small villages, were forced to live next to the men who had illegally imprisoned or tortured them. Only recently have these women dared to break the silence about their imprisonment and go public with their stories.
