NIÑOS DE LA MEMORIA tells the story of the search for hundreds of children who disappeared during the Salvadoran Civil War. Many were survivors of massacres carried out by the U.S.-trained Salvadoran army. Taken away from the massacre sites by soldiers, some grew up in orphanages or were adopted abroad, losing their history and identity. NIÑOS DE LA MEMORIA weaves together three separate yet intertwined journeys in the 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?

NIÑOS DE LA MEMORIA is a co-production of Honey Alley LLC, Pata de Perro Productions LLC, and the Independent Television Service (ITVS), produced in association with Latino Public Broadcasting (LPB) and Chicken & Egg Pictures/ Julie Parker Benello, Wendy Ettinger, Judith Helfand.
