The Tiniest Place / El lugar más pequeño
In 1979, a civil war broke out in El Salvador, Central America, which lasted 12 years and left more than 80,000 dead and thousands missing. Many villages were laid waste by the army and even ceased to exist on official maps of El Salvador. The film is a story of the survivors of this war, who strove to rebuild their villages from the ashes about man kind’s ability to arise, to rebuild and reinvent himself after surviving a tragedy.
A story about a people that have learned to live with their sorrow; an annihilated town that re-emerges through the strength and deep love of its’ inhabitants for the land and the people. A tiny place nestled in the mountains amidst the humid Salvadorean jungle.
