Movie Info

An elusive evil has taken over Mexico. Twenty years ago, the screams of young women echoed in the northern regions of the country, victims of unprecedented misogynistic fury. Behind the volcanoes of the capital, hundreds more suffered the same fate in recent years. Elsewhere, farmers, students as well as travelers disappear from roads while several journalists are gunned down. This climate of impunity opens the door to all abuses, and the entire country lives in terror. Some raise their voices, denouncing and investigating, while others, armed with shovels and trying to avoid ambushes, look for the missing people. As testimonies and discoveries add up, the truth slowly emerges.

By collecting these accounts together and giving them the space to breathe, Dark Suns builds up a disturbing profile of a country which is infested by corruption and greed.

June 7, 2019 | Full Review…

Dark Suns is utterly vital and haunting, chronicling a staggering history of crime and injustice that needs urgent attention from any higher-up with a conscience. It's often difficult to stomach, but these stories need to be told.

Shot in luminous black-and-white and edited to perfection, this 154-minute Canadian production might be the definitive take on the subject.

May 6, 2019 | Full Review…

So compelling and encompassing is [Julien] Elie's argument, by the end it's impossible to see any way out of the horrific, crime-infested wormhole the country and its citizens have been sucked into.
