At six years old Carmen Aguirre was a Chilean refugee adjusting to life in North America. At eighteen she was a revolutionary dissident married to a man she couldn't fully love. In her twenties she fought to find herself as an actress and break away from the stereotypes thrust upon her - housekeeper, hotel maid, Mexican Hooker #1. But alongside these many identities was another that was hard to embrace and impossible to escape: that of the thirteen-year-old girl attacked by one of Canada's most feared rapists. Thirty-three years after the assault, Carmen decided it was time to meet the man who changed her life.
From revolutionary to actress; from refugee to acclaimed director; from victim to lover, wife and mother; here are the many roles of Carmen Aguirre
