Watching Them Die: The Mexican Army and the 43 Disappeared
In the night of September 26th-27th 2014, a group of students from the Ayotzinapa Rural Teaching School were chased, shot and scattered across Iguala, Guerrero and the surrounding areas. Six people died, one is brain dead, and 43 are missing. The attackers were members of the local police, who acted under the surveillance of Mexican government and army agents. The investigation of this crime is known for its many deficiencies, and it has been directed to hide any participation of highest levels of the government. It seems that someone is trying to protect the army, even though there are traces, which indicate that the soldiers have been historically involved with acts of political repression and the disappearance of citizens, as well as with structures of protection of the organized crime.

About The Artist
Ojos de Perro vs la impunidad, (in English: Dog’s eyes against impunity) is a local collective which was created soon after the crimes against the students of Ayotzinapa, known as “The night of Iguala”, one more of many groups of people deeply concerned about the lack of justice, the corruption and the cover of complicities among public functionaries and the continuous decadency of social and political life in the country. We are writers, musicians, filmmakers, but mostly journalists, who decided to give our capacities of communication and investigation in service of this cause, within a framework of strict journalistic rigor.
