Friday October, 23 5:30PM
 

“Octubre23, una historia de estudiantes secundarios” es una búsqueda de desempolvar, de ponerle luz y nombres a esas fotos borrosas, tan lejanas como cercanas, de “los desaparecidos”. Es la necesidad de indagar en esas historias que nos acompañan a lo largo de una vida. Es revisar qué hicimos con esa llaga: la desaparición. Es el camino de identidad de un barrio, de un país. Es el patio de un colegio. Es la adolescencia y sus sueños y pesadillas.
