Performance times

This film is not currently showing in cinemas.

She fights daily against deliberate disinformation spread through news sources, government corruption, and the related drugs trade.

When she is fired by a radio station in 2015 after revealing a scandal involving then-President Enrique Peña Nieto, Carmen - with her dedicated journalist colleagues - decides to build a separate news platform.

Facing threats of violence in the wake of a prominent journalist’s vicious murder, they must overcome fear for their personal well-being to continue in a shared fight for democracy and justice.

Following the film we welcome director Juliana Fanjul and film participant Carmen Aristegui (via Skype) for a ScreenTalk.
