In this documentary, filmmaker Victoria Linares traces the life of her cousin Oscar Torres — a pioneer of Caribbean cinema, participant in leftist movements during the 1940s and, most crucially, a fellow queer person in the family. Torres’ story was largely erased and lost to time, which sets Victoria on a journey of self-discovery and historical excavation by unearthing memories and staging re-enactments of her cousin’s unproduced screenplays. Linares weaves together expressive sequences with immense skill, piecing together a powerful portrait of Torres’ creative and political legacy through the power of cinema.
