349. Soles Negros: A Mapping of Mexican Violence That Seeks Resolution
The Documentary ‘Soles Negros’ (Black Suns) by Julien Elie is a compendium of the many cases of violence and impunity that have transpired in Mexico for the past 20 + years. I consider this one should be broadcasted all over Mexico because many of these cases have been missed in mainstream media and have been the target of “quieted” journalism, which has become one of the most dangerous professions in this country.
What comes after one becomes aware of this kind of situations in this work of art and journalism in the form of a documentary? What’s the role of ourselves as the audience after this? What can we do after such a gruesome picture is painted? There is only one way: learning from it and being able to restore the justice and integrity that is missing in the majority of the cases.
