Isam Ahmad Issa,
A riveting documentary about a young Chilean filmmaker, Lissette Orozco, who discovers that her beloved aunt was a member of Pinochet's notorious secret police.
As a (debut) film, its balancing of the disparate elements is perhaps a little off too much unrelated footage of other family members, too much of the director talking about her feelings and it does become slightly repetitive towards the end, but its story and levels of access are incredible, and it's one of those few films deserving of that most overused of adjectives: brave.
Also Orozco has a lovely pretty face. Her next film, brilliantly, is about an uncle!
