abstract
Juarez is a feature length documentary that shows the theories found by family members of the victims, forensics, journalists, artists and activists in Mexico, questioning why the federal government hasn't intensified its interest to thoroughly investigate the brutal murders of over 500 women in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. Juarez exposes the high levels of corruption and violence in Mexico, which have led to increasing violence and murders against women. Also, the documentary shows several interviews to the children of some of the murdered women of Juarez. They are the other victims of the femicide.
