Abstract/Summary In the last couple of decades women film makers from Latin America have made films that not only challenge the hierarchical order but also attempt to denounce such terrible things as sexual violence perpetrated against adolescent girls by their own fathers. The two film directors studied in this article construct a feminine perspective from which to denounce the incest suffered by adolescents in an oppressively male-dominated society. In this work I analyse the films, Ángel de fuego (1992) of Mexican film director, Dana Rotberg and Madeinusa (2006) of Peruvian film director, Claudia Llosa. I have selected these films because of their subject matter and the great impact they both had in their country of origin and internationally but also because of their great artistic merit.
