NI UNA MAS/Not One More (2010)

NIUnaMasstill

NI UNA MAS (Not One More), running time 18 minutes, 2010, co-produced and directed by Angela Aguayo and Alex Hivoltze-Jimenez

Since 1993, over 430 young women have been found raped, tortured and murdered in the cities of Chihuahua and Juarez, Mexico. Over 600 women are still missing from the area without explanation from local or federal authorities. The circumstances of this atrocity, formally made visible by documentary filmmaker Lourdes Portillo in Senorita Extraviada, have evolved and exploded in the last 13 years. Once considered the maquiladora murders, this unthinkable phenomenon is more likely caused by a complex web of social, legal and political conditions exacerbated by negative media depictions of the abducted and missing women. This documentary explores the developing culture of violence towards women that allows injustice and oppression to continue.
