Honduras, 2017, Run Time: 17 Minutes

Retornados is a short documentary about three families who have been forced to return to Honduras and the extremely violent conditions they fled.

Retornados es un corto documental sobre tres familias que se han visto forzadas a retornar a Honduras y sobre las condiciones de extrema violencia que han tenido que soportar. A través de las movidas calles de la capital, ciertamente inestable, y mediante el drama y determinación de cada historia familiar, el filme explora la experiencia de volver a una situación familiar en la que, a pesar de todo, la inseguridad crece exponencialmente. Retornados reúne a las familias inmediatamente después de sus intentos infructuosos de cruzar la frontera con EEUU.
