Event Date:

Florence Jaugey (Nicaragua/ 1999/ 61 min)

The film takes us into the daily life of policewomen and social workers in one of the Police Commissaries for Women and Children in Nicaragua's capital city of Managua. Women of different ages, as well as children and young adults, come there seeking help against abusive husbands, lovers and parents. They also talk freely about their experiences and their sometimes conflicting desires for change. The men in their lives come to the station to respond to the charges. Actively engaged in the life of the community, the policewomen and social workers demonstrate their responsiveness and skill in dealing with a range of situations and abuses. In the course of documenting their day, the film records the essential and empowering process that breaks the traditional silence aiding and abetting domestic violence in its many forms.
