Year of Production: 2020

Cast: Carmen Aristegui

When renowned Mexican journalist Carmen Aristegui is fired from the radio station where she worked for revealing an important case of corruption, far from being intimidated, she becomes more invested in her struggle to collect and transmit truthful information. The powers that be are not on her side, but her research team and a network of more than 18 million listeners are missing his arbitrarily muted voice. From a close, agile and reflective perspective, Juliana Fanjul not only shows the strong and charismatic personality of the influential Aristegui, but the filmmaker also uses her voice to dedicate a painful love letter to a fragmented country afflicted by corruption, drug trafficking, and violence.

Cuando la reconocida periodista mexicana Carmen Aristegui es despedida de la estación de radio donde trabaja por revelar un importante caso de corrupción, lejos de amedrentarse se vuelve más insistente en su lucha por recabar y transmitir información transparente. El poder no está de su lado, pero sí lo están su equipo de investigación y una red de más de 18 millones de oyentes que echan de menos su voz arbitrariamente silenciada. Desde una perspectiva cercana, ágil y reflexiva, Juliana Fanjul no solo muestra el carácter fuerte y  carismática de la influyente Aristegui, sino que la realizadora también usa su voz para dedicar una dolorosa carta de amor a un país fragmentado ante la mezcla de corrupción, narcotráfico y violencia.
