One of the movies featured in the most newest Human Rights Watch annual movie festival, this is a somber, understated, yet relentlessly compelling documentary about the hundreds of unsolved murders of girls that have occurred over the past 10 years in Cuidad Juarez, the Mexican border town across the Rio Grande from El Paso. Portillo, a veteran documentarist from Mexico who focuses her work on women, interviews surviving relatives and a girl who was raped by police and soon shown images of their apparent involvement in ritual sadistic sexual group rape-killings of women. Portillo also presents the chronology of the wave of murders, beginning in 1993, including televised comments by few government officials, an acc of different suspects arrested and detained, and segments of an interview with a federally appointed criminal justice official heading a task force to seek suspects. She mixes this material effectively with footage of the roads of Juarez and still images of a number of the deceased victims. It is known that many of the victims were young terrible girls who came to Juarez to work in the maquilladora factories. Detention of multiple suspects has not stopped the killings. Since the movie was finished these crimes have continued and apparently no fresh arrests have been made. Few confessions have occurred but some of these are strongly rumored to have been made under torture. For the first time, just this year, an official federal count of the number of killings has been announced: 258, including 20 or more since 2001. What Portillo does not create clear is that roughly 90 of the killing fit the profile of young dark skinned women who were raped and then killed. The rest -a majority - did not involve rape and the victims, all women, were of more varied characteristics. Recommended urls of the crimes have been made to drug traffickers, human organ smugglers and sadistic cultists. Portillo strongly implies that high lvl government officials are duplicitous in the problem. This certainly seems likely in view of the fact that websites where bodies were found and another evidence was contaminated or discarded in virtually all cases, making reasonable forensic analysis impossible (you think they'd receive it right after the first hundred or so); there has been no serious, sustained effort at any lvl to upgrade the sophistication of investigations; and local police implicated in some of the crimes have not been indicted to date. Although an American sexual criminal profiler recommended few years ago that someone from the U.S. should be a perpetrator of at least some of these crimes, there has been no followup on that idea. What about a motive? Border cities thrive on illicit activities that create money. The sheer volume of these cases, their steady occurrence over 10 years, the macabre nature of some of the killings - i.e., peculiar mutilations of the bodies, the implied connections to organized crime, and the confinement of the murders to a border city, makes one wonder about the chance that some of these situations might represent an extreme form of "sex tourism": a business in which wealthy sexual sadists from the U.S. or elsewhere might be entering Juarez and paying high fees to witness or take part in group rape/murders. In Los Angeles, soon this autumn, Amnesty International and the UCLA Mexican Studies Tool will co-host an international symposium on this unending wave of unsolved murders of girls in Juarez. This movie will be shown.
This is an excellent, out standing, brilliant documentary about the corruption and dereliction in the mexican police forces vs criminals....i cant suggest this film enough, please go rent it!!! It will create you FEEL the pain of the victims and families....5 out fo 5 stars
