They will not silence our voices (No callarán nuestras voces)

The film explores the threats and gender violence towards Mexican female journalists. Mexico is one of the most dangerous countries in which to practice journalism, within this context, female journalists face a double challenge: in the first place, working in a country with a high level of hostility towards this profession and, secondly, the situation of their gender in a country riddled with femicides. This short doc is a byproduct of an academic research project.

Special thanks to the brilliant work of female journalists, activists and academics in Mexico, whose combined efforts have helped this short-doc. Your work and voices have truly inspired this work. I cannot thank you enough.
