The Truth Behind the Juarez Murders

A documentary film
by
Lorena Mendez-Quiroga


A Peace at the Border Films Production


Border Echoes-Ecos De Una Frontera, is a documentary that tells the story of the slayings of girls and women in Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, through the eyes of investigative reporter Diana Washington Valdez. 

The film, in English, chronicles the chilling story of the deaths that Amnesty International called "Intolerable Killings" in its 2003 report on Ciudad Juarez.  Some victims were as young as 5 and 6 years old, and the majority of the victims were teenagers and young women.  Although numerous suspects are in custody, activists and families of victims believe the Mexican authorities have not solved most of the crimes.  The film explains why the murders are likely to continue.  It also provides previously unreported and shocking details about the murders.
