Alicia Calderon, Director
More than 20,000 people disappeared in Mexico during the horrifically violent war on drugs waged by former President Calderón.
Putting a human face on the most harrowing of statistics, director Alicia Calderón follows three mothers as they search for their children who have disappeared. With their lives now completely devoted to seeking out the truth, they pursue any avenue possible, in the face of an indifferent government which considers their loved ones to be 'collateral casualties' of the drug war. Through vigils, testimonials, protests and hunger strikes, these women refuse to bow - nor turn away from the brutality that underpins the disappearances. UCL Institute of the Americas is pleased to collaborate in this event, and to invite you to join an after-screening talk with the film's director, Alicia Calderón, in which disappearances in Mexico and the relentless struggles of the relatives of the disappeared will be discussed.
