En_el_nombre_de_la_hija-188965329-largeKarl Marx’s famous quotation “Religion is the opium of the people” is one of the ‘odd’ ideas nine-year-old Manuela confronts her ultra-catholic family with, while she tries to teach her little cousins the basic principles of communism… It is the summer of 1976 in a valley of the Andes Mountains in Ecuador. Manuela, educated according to the communist and atheistic ideals of her beloved father, believes her parents to be on a revolutionary mission in Colombia, while she and her five-year-old brother Camilo have to spend the summer at their grandparents’ farmhouse. Of course, in a catholic-conservative household a nine-year-old’s Marxist world outlook will cause trouble. Manuela eagerly defends her father’s political and philosophical ideas, unwilling to obey her grandmother’s conservative rules.

Film to be followed by discussion with Director Tania Hermida
