Event Description
2. Innocent Voices: Running time 135 minutes. Produced in 2004. Language: Spanish with English subtitles. Rated R.
Director Luis Mandoki presents a society of innocent victims who are caught in a blinding cross fire, a life-or-death environment in which survival is a daily struggle. Based on the true story of a now-grown Oscar Torres, this moving film set in El Salvador in the mid-1980s follows the drama of a young boy who must choose between enlisting in the Salvadoran army or joining up with a band of guerrillas.
