History of a Secret
As a child, French filmmaker Mariana Otero grew up thinking her vanished mother was working in Paris. As an adult, she learned the truth from her father: Mariana's mother died in a back-alley abortion. Otero fearlessly explores this dark family secret in this documentary, which looks at the abortion issue from an intensely personal standpoint. The wrenching film won Best Documentary at the 2003 Valladolid International Film Festival.
