Here's a quick heads-up about a film that will be playing at the Bloor Cinema on September 27 at 7PM - 'Juarez: The City Where Women Are Disposable'.

'Juarez is a feature length documentary that shows the theories found by family members of the victims, forensics, journalists, artists and activists in Mexico, questioning why the federal government hasn’t intensified its interest to thoroughly investigate the brutal murders of over 460 women in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua. Juarez exposes the high levels of corruption and violence in Mexico, which have led to increasing violence and murders against women. Also, the documentary shows several interviews to the children of some of the murdered women of Juarez. They are the other victims of the femicide.' - from the website

Tickets, which are $10 each, are available in advance from the Toronto Women's Bookstore or by placing an order through juarezdoc@lasperlasdelmarfilms.com. For more info on the film, including a director's statement, check out the website.
