Director: Marcela Arteaga
Writer: Marcela Arteaga

Editor: Javier Campos
In Spanish with English subtitles

This second documentary from director Arteaga is a strong and lyrical meditation on Mexico's failed drug wars and their devastating impact on local communities. In this powerful film, quiet landscapes from Mexicos Juarez Valley are juxtaposed with horrifying tales of mass murder. In 2008, the Mexican government sent an army to the rugged border region with the purported goal of fighting the rampant drug trafficking. As locals from Juarez and Chihuahua tearfully recount the stories of their murdered or disappeared children, parents, and siblings, a Texas-based lawyer argues that asylum seekers from the area must be considered victims of a genocide. As Mexicos new federal administration deploys more armed forces throughout the country and has granted them a constitutional role in domestic securityin clear opposition to President Andrés Manuel López Obradors electoral promise of withdrawing the military from the streets, The Guardian of Memory serves as a daring and cinematic testament to a dragging humanitarian crisis with no clear end in sight.

Este segundo largometraje documental de la directora Arteaga es una potente y lírica meditación en torno a la fallida guerra contra las drogas en México y su devastador impacto en las comunidades locales. En esta poderosa película, a los tranquilos y placidos paisajes del Valle de Juárez de México se le yuxtaponen historias horripilantes de asesinatos en masa. En 2008, el gobierno mexicano envió un ejército a la accidentada región fronteriza con el objetivo de combatir el rampante tráfico de drogas. Mientras los habitantes de Juárez y Chihuahua cuentan con lágrimas en los ojos las historias de sus hijos, padres y hermanos asesinados o desaparecidos, un abogado de Texas argumenta que los solicitantes de asilo del área deben ser considerados víctimas de un genocidio. A medida que la nueva administración federal de México despliega más fuerzas armadas en todo el país y les otorga un papel constitucional en la seguridad interna, en clara oposición a la promesa electoral del presidente Andrés Manuel López Obrador de retirar al ejército de las calles, El guardián de la memoria sirve como un audaz testimonio cinematográfico de una devastadora crisis humanitaria a la cual no se le ve fin.
