Interview with the director.

It was clear to Imanol Uribe that the massacre of the Jesuits in El Salvador in 1989 was a story that had to be told. In this video interview with the film director and with Juana Acosta, the main actress in the film that will finally be called "La mirada de Lucía", they reveal how the only witness to the massacre serves to narrate the events and the whole context, from a very humble, very innocent point of view, and for that very reason very tenacious, because Lucía Cerna admired and loved the Jesuits of the UCA.

In Uribe's words, "the film speaks of the constancy of maintaining the truth above all else" and unfortunately "the same causes that provoked that are still alive today". This is also the opinion of the Provincial, Antonio España SJ, who says that the main point of the film is "to remember, not to forget what happened in El Salvador in 1989 and what has been happening in many places in Latin and Central America, which is the persistent experience of injustice and violence, to which the Society of Jesus is still trying to respond through the educational and social institutions it has there".
