Imported print! Magical realism casts its mesmerizing hue on historical trauma in The Milk of Sorrow. Fausta, a young indigenous woman who believes she has inherited her mother's suffering through breast milk, must tend to her psychological scars in order to give her mother a proper burial. Her journey to earn enough money takes her beyond the comfort of her home, and its spare melody is woven from Magaly Solier's luminous songs and performance, as well as the dread-filled landscape of Lima's outskirts.

runtime: 95m format: 35mm

Part of our Monday series, Small Deaths: A Meditation on Grief in Cinema
