Lola Arias

Mi vida después

What was my country like when I was born? What was my parents’ generation like? And what about my own generation? Such questions assume a different importance when addressed by author and playwright Lola Arias and the protagonists of «Mi vida después» (My life after). Lola Arias was born in Buenos Aires in 1976, the year the military rose to power in Argentina. Her actors are all about the same age. On the basis of childhood memories, family pictures, letters and old clothes, the sons and daughters of guerrilleros, news readers, members of the secret police, priests and exiled intellectuals examine the past in order to learn something about the future. «Mi vida después» is a multi-layered kaleidoscope of individual memories and political reality and impressively bridges the gap between personal and national history.
