Blood Rising [electronic resource]

Since 1994, more than 1,400 women in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, have been murdered in the 'feminocidio'. Artist Brian Maguire set out to paint portraits of some of the victims. This film, by Mark McLoughlin, examines the phenomenon of femicide - the killing of women ostensibly due to their gender - in the Mexican city Juarez; a place where femicide has become a way of life. Through the lens of an artist, Brian Maguire, who spent time in Juarez getting to know the families left behind, the film looks at the fallout and follow up to femicide and whether the families can ever find peace. This video contains content that may not be suitable for all audiences.

Juarez [electronic resource]: Mexico's Murder City

Situated across the Rio Grande from El Paso, Texas, the Mexican City of Juárez has become one of the most dangerous cities in the world. It is a major conduit for illegal drugs passing from Mexico to the United States and a bloody battleground as cartels murder each other and innocent civilians. People have been strangled, beheaded, dismembered, and stoned to death: a mere shooting hardly gets any attention. The film tells the human stories behind these atrocities.

City of Dead Women [electronic resource]: Serial Killers Strike in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico

They call Ciudad Juarez, a city in the state of Chihuahua, Mexico, "the serial killers' playground." In the past decade, over 500 women have been murdered there. Most were abducted, raped, and tortured before they were killed. So many women have died that a new word has been invented to describe what is happening: "femicidios," the murder of women. Despite an international outcry, the killings have continued. There are even claims the police are protecting the girls' murderers. What has made Ciudad Juarez so dangerous for women? Many suspect that, since the city is home to the world's second largest drug cartel, drug barons are involved. This hard-hitting documentary investigates.

City of Dreams

Loading...
Juarez is often called "City of Dreams" because hundreds of thousands of young women have been drawn to this frontier town from the most impoverished regions of Mexico. They aspire to a life free from poverty and free from the male-dominated traditional family and village. Since 1993 over two hundred of these young women have been murdered, and the crimes barely investigated. Many of the victims were assembly-line workers in the over four hundred mostly US-owned factories. This compelling documentary focuses on the social causes at the root of the unsolved murders. The factories, known as "maquiladoras" have brought the city jobs and opportunities otherwise rare in Mexico, but also enormous social changes as a result of free trade and globalization. Mexican human rights activists con [...]
