The Guardian of Memory

Director: Marcela Arteaga Run Time: 93 min. Rating: Not Rated Language: Spanish

The Guardian of Memory bears witness to the violence that has displaced thousands, while examining how governments on both sides of the border have exacerbated the crisis. With striking visual poetry, director Marcela Arteaga provides intimate accounts of the lives Mexican migrants have left behind, while also highlighting the work of Carlos Spector, an immigration lawyer from El Paso, who fights to obtain asylum for those fleeing the violence.

“Arteaga sits with many of the survivors telling one horror story after another in what could be best described as a modern-day Holocaust.” ~ Alan Ng, Film Threat

” An impactful, wise and bone-chilling work that tries to keep alive the memory of a massacred town and its survivors.” ~ Rodrigo Gallegos, Shuffle Online
