Senorita Extraviada/Why Cybraceros?/Fernando's/First Snow (#220)
SENORITA EXTRAVIADA: Since 1993, hundreds of young women have been raped and murdered in Juarez, Mexico. Authorities ignore pleas for justice from the victims' families, and the crimes go unpunished. Most disturbingly, evidence of government complicity remains uninvestigated as the killings continue to this day. This program is a haunting look at a heinous crime wave amid the corruption of one of the world's biggest border towns.
WHY CYBRACEROS?: This short is a satirical look at immigration in the digital age.
FERNANDO'S FIRST SNOW: This short is about a boy who finds an unexpected new friend. [86 minutes]
