THE WAY SHE SPOKE
Available beginning March 2021
Directed by Brent Hazelton
Featuring Michelle Lopez-Rios
An intimate docu-drama examining the border between terror and responsibility
An actor walks on stage, opens a script, and reads—and reality and performance blur as she shares harrowing details of the fates of las desaparecidas, the vanished women of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico. Haunting and visceral, yet profoundly compassionate, this challenging new play digs for the roots of an epidemic of violence that has resulted in the murders of thousands of women, and gives voice to a community rendered silent by fear.
