The Film

Niños de la Memoria tells the story of the search for children who disappeared during the Salvadoran civil war. Survivors of massacres carried out by the U.S.-trained Salvadoran Army battalions, many were “sold” into adoption in the U.S. and Europe, never knowing their true history or identity. The film weaves together the journeys of investigator Margarita Zamora, adoptee Jamie Harvey, and farmer Salvador García as they search for family, identity, and justice in El Salvador, and asks the larger question: How can a post-war society right the wrongs of the past?
