Director Statement

"The insilensed voice" is a documentary made collecting the voices of men and women who suffered sexual abuses at any moment of their childhood. A taboo subject, uncomfortable, that when we started thinking about it, the #MeToo movement had not even started, which finally managed to put the issue of sexual abuse on the public agenda. Most of their stories are examples of struggle, generally solitary and tenacious, against a system that in most cases remains elusive and full of prejudices. All their stories reveal a path full of injustice, starting with the impossibility of speaking and telling what had happened to them, as what happened to them when they wanted to denounce, finding that their cases had been prescribed in most of the cases, due to the time elapsed, or directly with their abusers being acquitted, by a Judicial System that still can not find a way to repair the victims. I think it is a necessary film, since five new cases of children who are sexually abused only in Argentina are detected per day, while at the same time it is the crime that is the least reported.
