The Devil's Freedom (La libertad del diablo)
Devil’s Freedom - Going beyond the headlines and abstract statistics regarding the gruesome effects of the battle against drug crimes in Mexico, acclaimed documentarian Everardo Gonzalez presents the viewer with first-hand accounts from both victims and perpetrators. Those who live with the absence of their loved ones, and those who have caused them. Their faces are hidden behind a mask to preserve their anonymity, and though their emotions are concealed, we sense them all the more because of this. Their detailed and shocking confessions are juxtaposed with episodes from everyday life, creating a complex portrait of a society grappling with its brutal reality.
