Death and the Maiden
11th - 19th March 2005
~ Directed by Chris Janes ~
Paulina Escobar is the housewife to a prominent lawyer in an unamed third world country. A chance encounter brings up demons from her past, as she was convinced that her neighbour (Dr.Miranda) was part of the old fascist regime that torturted and raped her while blindfolded.
Paulina is torn between her psychological repression and sombre memory, Gerardo is torn between his wife and the law,and Dr.Miranda is forced to endure captivity while husband and wife seek out the uncertain truth about the clouded past.
