The Memory of Water (La memoria del agua, 2015, Matias Bize, Chile, 88 min, in Spanish w/English subtitles)
 
In Santiago, Amanda and Javier find it impossible to cope with the drowning death of their four-year-old son. As time passes, their grief only worsens until Amanda can barely look at her husband anymore, and they begin to drift apart.  This delicately filmed exploration of the wayward paths to recovery and survival after shattering loss asks if some shared memories are too harrowing to overcome.
 
In conjunction with the Latin America Film Festival
 
Introduction by Pilar Osario-Lora (UMass)
 
The director will be present for discussion.
