"CHAPLIN MEETS ERASERHEAD” IN THIS MAGICAL-NEO-REALIST, MODERN DAY SILENT FILM.
LA VOZ DE LOS SILENCIADOS takes us inside the mind and heartbreak of Olga, a deaf teenager brought from Latin America to New York City, under the false promise of attending a “Christian Sign Language School”.
Upon arrival we enter a world of immigrant trafficking, and life is turned upside-down as she's enslaved by an international criminal ring.
Forced to beg on the subway, Olga uses courage, cunning, and even humor, to face an unimaginable nightmare-on-loop that ravages the audience.
Based on a real case broken by the NYPD.
