HRWFF 2020: Radio Silence

Human Rights Watch Film Festival

Followed by Q&A with filmmaker Juliana Fanjul.

To millions of people in Mexico, the incorruptible journalist and news anchor Carmen Aristegui is regarded as the trusted alternative voice to official government spin, fighting daily against deliberate disinformation spread through news sources, government corruption, and the related drugs trade.

When she is fired by a radio station in 2015 after revealing a scandal involving then-President Enrique Peña Nieto, Carmen - with her dedicated journalist colleagues - decides to build a separate news platform. Facing threats of violence in the wake of a prominent journalist's vicious murder, they must overcome fear for their personal well-being to continue in a shared fight for democracy and justice.
