BORN IN EVIN, tells the story of a mother daughter relationship shaped by a regime’s attempt to turn the most intimate aspects of life into a battlefield. It’s the endeavor to break with decades of silence. Non-judgmental to the strategies of survival but with a strong political engagement the film draws a complex picture of the long-term consequences of human rights violations and trauma on many generations to come.
