Memories of Tata

PBS Premiere: June 28, 1994


Are machismo, infidelity and violence inseparable? When filmmaker Sheldon Schiffer tears off the veils of silence in his Nicaraguan immigrant family, he uncovers the scars left on his mother, aunt and grandmother by his enigmatic grandfather. In a tragically common family saga, Schiffer reflects on his legacy and reexamines what it means to be a man.
