By the time the Civil war ended in El Salvador in 1992, some 75,000 people had been killed and entire towns and villages were completely wiped off the map. The remote rural town of Cinquera had been targeted by the military and completely depopulated until a handful of survivors decided to go back and rebuild their lives on their native soil. The Tiniest Place tells the story of Cinquera entirely through the words of the survivors, capturing their astonishing resilience, and their mystical relationship with the land. Anchoring her story in the pastoral tranquility of the villagers' present-day lives, and gradually interweaving tragic testimonies about the war, director Tatiana Huezo has crafted a film that is both heartbreaking and hopeful. Cinematographer Ernesto Pardo brilliantly captures the enchanting beauty of the landscape, and the film’s subtle editing rhythms of sound and image convey a profound expression of the spirit of the land. Winner of awards at numerous festivals, including Visions du Reel, Documenta Madrid, Lima International, Monterrey International, Abu Dhabi, and DOK Leipzig.
