Four films exploring the relationships between character, place, and time. Featuring four renowned cinematic artists Lourdes Portillo, Spike Lee, David Gordon Green, and Gus Van Sant.

A haunting investigation into a crime wave amid the disorders and corruption of one of the biggest border towns in the world. Someone is killing the young women of Juárez, Mexico. Since 1993, over 270 young women have been raped and murdered in a chillingly consistent and brazen manner. Authorities ignore pleas for justice from the victims’ families and the crimes go unpunished. Evidence of government complicity remains uninvestigated as the killings continue to this day.

Filmmaker Lourdes Portillo crafted a film that is both a poetic meditation and a mystery – a documentary which wades into questions that the authorities would rather ignore.
