Señorita Extraviada

PBS Premiere: August 20, 2002


Someone is killing the young women of Juárez, Mexico. Since 1993, over 270 young women have been raped and murdered in a chillingly consistent and brazen manner. Authorities ignore pleas for justice from the victims’ families and the crimes go unpunished. Most disturbingly, evidence of government complicity remains ininvestigated as the killings continue to this day. Crafting a film that is both a poetic meditation and a mystery, Lourdes Portillo’s Señorita Extraviada is a haunting investigation into an unspeakable crime wave amid the disorders and corruption of one of the biggest border towns in the world.
