Synopsis

 

María desapareció en 2011en una carretera del noroeste argentino,  Laura fue secuestrada en 1976 durante la última dictadura y Ema  fue raptada por indígenas en 1875, en medio de la Pampa. Las tres comparten el mismo destino: las tres se volvieron aire. En una recurrencia cercana a la costumbre, cada uno de los últimos tres siglos expresa un destino similar para la existencia femenina.


Maria disappeared in a road of the Northwest of Argentina in 2011, Laura was kidnaped in the midst of a fierce dictatorship in 1976, and  Ema was appropriated by Indians  in 1875, in the middle of La Pampa.  They all  share a common destiny: they all vanished into air.  In a recurrence close to a habit, every one of the last three centuries expresses a singular path to women’s existence.
