Sangre Violenta / Sangre Violeta

Directed by Edna Diaz, Arturo R. Jiménez

Produced by Maggie M. Bailey

United States | Spanish | 15' | Non-Fiction

Why does the Mexican government consider the feminist movement a bigger threat than most drug cartels? The compelling short documentary 'SANGRE VIOLENTA / SANGRE VIOLETA' interweaves three powerful narratives, shedding light on the motivations behind their activism in Mexico. These stories include a radical feminist collective, an inspiring survivor of an acid attack, and a grieving father who tragically lost his seven-year-old daughter to femicide.

"Sangre Violenta / Sangre Violeta," directed by Edna Diaz and Arturo R. Jiménez, is an intense and eye-opening short documentary that is hard to watch but impossible to ignore. The film’s shocking statistics and footage of protests are particularly effective, evoking a deep sense of rage and urgency that make you feel like you’re right there in the action. I particularly love the filmmakers’ inclusion of men speaking up for women's rights, not something often seen in films like this. Strong filmmaking and a powerful ending make this documentary a must-see, leaving a lasting impact and sparking a call to action. — Jillian Corsie, Programmer
