DARK SUNS

There is a crisis in Mexico. While sensational headlines hint at the problem, DARK SUNS reveals the terrifying extent of the violence. Beginning with apparently arbitrary kidnappings and murders of countless women in the cities Juárez and Ecatepec, the story expands across the country detailing how the violence has spread to journalists and activists attempting to uncover the problem. Details are harrowing, but the courage and persistence of the families and survivors are inspiring. Shot in stark black and white with a sound design that immerses the viewer in a vivid sense of place, DARK SUNS is a thoroughly cinematic experience that honours the lives and deaths it explores, balancing intimate stories with the mammoth scale of this national crisis.
