In this hard-nosed, steely-eyed documentary feature, Marcela Zamora–El Salvador’s preeminent journalist-cum-director–exhumes the sad remains of decades’ worth of gang violence that have decimated her country and its people. Straddling the line between compassion and science, forensic anthropologists gather to study the bones drawn from El Salvador’s innumerable mass graves, hoping to identify the remains so that grieving mothers of the desaparecidos (the “missing”) can arrive at some sense of closure.
