This unnerving but moving film centers on an encounter between a man obsessed with the disappearance of his father and a man making a film about the search for remains of the disappeared. Polvo traces how this encounter leads its characters—and us—that much closer to coming to terms with the lingering traumas of Guatemala’s recent past.
