“I had thought for many years that this story deserved a documentary. I worked with the distance that time has given us, with the greatest respect and with a critical and reflective will. When all this happened, I was 22 years old. Now, 20 years later, I have a more mature look, and from an almost cinematic narrative, I can reflect on society. My previous works have as thematic axes history and democratic memory. Now, my intention with this film is to go further and recover the spirit of social denunciation from the contemporary and gender perspective, something that was unthinkable 20 years ago. - Tània Balló, director of The Wanninkhof case - Carabantes About The Wanninkhof - Carabantes case In 1999, the young Rocío Wanninkhof is assassinated. Dolores Vázquez, the ex-partner of her mother, enters prison without solid evidence to prove her guilt. Influenced by a strong discriminatory campaign, Spanish public opinion wants to find a culprit. When the lifeless body of another teenager, Sonia Carabantes, appears in 2003, the police catch the real murderer, but by then society has already turned the page. A filmic bet that covers the multiple perspectives of the case: judicial, political, media and gender.
