Mirar morir: 2016 NC LAFF

Be sure to come out to the 2016 NC Latin American Film Festival!

After the murder of 6 people and the disappearance of 43 students in Iguala, on September 26, 2014, the Mexican government launched what it called the largest investigation in history. In another investigation, carried out by documentary filmmakers in this film, it is discovered that the objective of the work of the authorities is not to find the missing students, or identify the perpetrators, nor inquire into the networks of complicity that allowed the crime to be committed: it is in fact a damage control operation to prevent us from knowing how precisely it happened.  In an event in which local criminals, municipal police and municipal politicians are involved, the State wanted to present what happened in Iguala as isolated, in time without ties to the past of the Dirty War and the proliferation of drug trafficking. An event without ties to politicians and corporations and state level federal forces. The film reveals the fine line walked by the Mexican State: protecting the Army, while maintaining justice and enforcing the Constitution.

Followed by a student round table. Food will be provided!

This event is part of the Global Day of Action for the missing 43 missing Iguala students. For more information, click here.

Hosted by Ojos de Perro productions and Duke Mi Gente. Co-sponsored by the Duke Spanish Language Program and the Duke Human Rights Center@FHI.
