    Jaime recorded everything, even his own death. From him, her daughter received more than one hundred hours of home videos and many uncertainties. Because as many people of his generation, Jaime was a clandestine person. But in his case, probably two times clandestine. The images recorded by Jaime, resignify to give place to questions around desire, sexuality, family and freedom. "Silence is a Falling Body" is the trip to a intimate and filial past, but also to a political one.
