Victoria Linares is a filmmaker from the Dominican Republic. Her late uncle, Oscar Torres, was also a filmmaker, a pioneering artist who became virtually forgotten. A revelation concerning Oscar sends Victoria down a path of (self-)discovery, through reconstructions of Oscar’s intimate memories of living in the Caribbean in the 1950s and early 1960s, first under the Trujillo dictatorship in the DR, then in Fidel Castro’s Cuba. In an attempt to honor Oscar’s memory, Victoria leads enactments of his unproduced screenplays with the family who erased him.
