Guerrilleras is a documentary film about the Salvadoran Civil War from a gender perspective: the female experience within the anti-government Farabundo Martí National Liberation Front (FMLN) guerrilla forces. The film presents a historical moment of struggle, hope, and love within the revolutionary movement—ultimately unveiling the impact that the war had on women in a pronounced patriarchal social structure. Directed by Rebecka Bíró and Victoria Montero.
