Exactly one year ago, 43 student-activists in Mexico disappeared (and were massacred). Our students, led by Mariana Becerra, organized a late night screening to raise awareness of the tragedy and increase understanding of the systemic dynamics that caused it.
More than 60 students came to Macneal commons. Pillows, blankets, and snacks made for a cozy atmosphere. Despite initial technical difficulties, the screening had a powerful impact and tears were not uncommon. First, an introductory piece called “The Missing 43” was shown. After a short intermission, “Ayotzinapa” by Xavier Robles was shown. Students left with much to ponder.
