Dear All,

Just a reminder that these are the last days of our Women’s History Month
Special Offer featuring the Video Librarian HIGHLY RECOMMENDED documentary
WITH MY HEART IN YAMBO.

"3 ½ stars... With My Heart in Yambo interweaves archival footage and
interviews, coming across as a nightmarish collage…Highly recommended.” -
Video Librarian

“Since it opened at cinemas in Ecuador in October it has been seen by more
than 160,000 people, making it the most successful documentary in the
country’s history. Such has been its impact that the interior ministry has
promised to show it to police officers as part of their human rights
training, and the attorney general has begun a new investigation.” – Irene
Caselli, BBC

Now available for educational use, 2014 New Release With My Heart in Yambo
recounts the devastating story of the 1988 kidnapping of two teenage
brothers. An intimate journey into a family’s personal tragedy unveils one
of the darkest political episodes in Ecuador’s recent history. An
illuminating documentary, With My Heart in Yambo would make an important
contribution to courses in Latin American Studies, International Politics,
Documentary Studies and Women’s Studies.

WITH MY HEART IN YAMBO
María Fernanda Restrepo
Ecuador / 137 min / Spanish with English subtitles
When director María Fernanda Restrepo was only 10 years old, her life
changed in the cruelest of ways: her two brothers—then 14 and 17—vanished
without a trace. Only later did the family learn that the boys had been
illegally detained, tortured, and murdered by the Ecuadorean police. Now,
decades later, with her brothers’ remains still missing, Restrepo embarks
on the painful journey of recounting her family’s story. In the process,
she comes face to face with the suspects, and documents yet one more
search in Lake Yambo, where the boys’ bodies were dumped.
