Death and the Maiden

by Ariel Dorfman

Death and the Maiden is about the ability to survive an horrific, cruel dictatorship then face the challenge of forgiveness as democracy takes hold and a country begins to recover. Just as the light of a hopeful and recovering country shines, three individuals are brought together by circumstances, and not only memories but deep dark scars are forced out into the open. Do they survive is an important question.

Directed by Nick Jupp.
