Alleged Femicide in Mexico

The Femicide in Latin America It has been a historically silent, uncomfortable, taboo subject, but in recent years several writers and directors have taken up the issue to denounce the seemingly endless scourge that highlights the isolation of women in a violent patriarchal environment where patriarchal culture constitutes a system of terror. In literature we find modern examples, such as those of the Argentine Dolores Reyes (eat dirt) or Almada Forest (dead girls) In the cinema last year, director Tatiana Hizu signed the overwhelming majority night of fire, takes place in a rural environment dominated by the mafia and cartels where mothers abandon their daughters as boys so that they will not be kidnapped. Currently, Natalia Berstein adheres to this line of condemnation in a very educational and raw manner Noisea film that follows in the footsteps (almost in a detective way) of a woman who did not give up her daughter, who disappeared without a trace without the authorities doing anything to find her.

Beristin plunges into the sewers of the system that allows these crimes and common cry of anger. For this reason, this journey into horror is shocking and at the same time irrefutable from a human and collective point of view when it comes to shedding light on these atrocities. CHIM HOUSES

The sexual tension underlying Susan George’s character in Bikenpa’s has no place in Soroguin’s, which is much more concerned with exploring roots and cultural differences: a French couple (Marina Vaux and Denis Menouche) collide with a neighboring family led by something similar to a village teacher (Louis Zahira), who leads The conflict turns into a human conflict in which Sorogoyen’s varying visual strengths prevail over some of the weak aspects of the text.
