About the film
Voces Inocentes (2004)
Directed by Luis Mandoki
Running time 100 minutes approx
11 year old Chava lives in a shanty town in El Salvador where civil war is raging. Young boys are being forced out of their classrooms and conscripted and a normal childhood hardly seems possible any more. The family has been abandoned by Chava’s father and his mother tells him he is the man of the house, but he’s also on the cusp of adolescence with a playful personality and a budding first love for a little girl at school. With Carlos Padilla (Chavos) and Leonora Varela (his mother, Kella).
