The after-effects of the Latin American dictatorships of the ‘70s and ‘80s continue to be felt in Breadcrumbs. Director Manane Rodríguez focuses a cinematic lens on a woman by the name of Liliana (Cecilia Roth as the older Liliana, and Justina Bustos as her younger self). 

At first, we are introduced to the older Liliana who has made the decision to return to Uruguay for the wedding of her estranged son, Diego (Ignacio Cawen). It isn’t long before Liliana’s troubled past as a politically active young person returns to haunt her. 

Containing confronting scenes of the abuse of young Liliana, Breadcrumbs brings awareness to an often forgotten part of history, and the strength of the women who endured it in solidarity.
