Summary: Re-trato de familia is the first installment in a trilogy of family projects which features works by Annie Listwa, Mario Permuth, Igal Permuth and Jaime Permuth.

Thematically, it examines family traditions in the context of the very turbulent political life of Guatemala. In this sense it is concerned with how national turmoil and institutional violence affect families and how these in turn determine the fate of individuals.
