Looking for my SisterLooking for my SisterLooking for my Sister

Looking for my Sister fuses animation, word and sound in a poetic way to draw attention to the many women who are subject to high rates of violence because of their gender and/or race and their involvement in the sex trade. It also portraits the hopeful but also frustrating experience their families face when trying to find their missing loved ones.

The marginal space of the city: the factories, the old buildings, the abandoned shops. In the street, the degenerate and the disempowered gather to make it through another day. A little girl walks by...she is a stranger here. Somebody approaches and demands: "What are you doing here?". The little girl, shy but determined, responds: "I am looking for my sister".

Produced, directed and animated by Antonio Cerdán with the support of the Conseil des Arts et des lettres du Québec, the Société de développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) and the National Film Board of Canada’s l’Aide au cinéma indépendant (ACIC) program.

As-tu vu ma sœur (French version)

As-tu vu ma sœur? fusionne animation, parole et son d'une manière poétique pour attirer l'attention sur les femmes victimes de taux élevés de violence en raison de leur sexe et/ou de leur race et leur implication dans le commerce du sexe.

Il dépeint également l'expérience pleine d'espoir mais aussi frustrante à laquelle font face leurs familles lorsqu'elles tentent de retrouver leurs proches disparus.

L'espace marginal de la ville : les usines, les vieux bâtiments, les magasins abandonnés. Dans la rue, les dégénérés et les démunis se rassemblent pour passer une autre journée. Une petite fille passe...c'est une étrangère ici. Quelqu'un s'approche et exige : "Que fais-tu ici ?" La petite fille, timide mais déterminée, répond : " Je suis à la recherche de ma sœur ".

Produit, réalisé et animé par Antonio Cerdán avec le soutien du Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec , la Société du développement des entreprises culturelles (SODEC) et le Programme d’aide au cinéma indépendant (ACIC) de l’Office national du film du Canada (ONF),
