This work by Yael Martinez, a former student, makes the tragic reality of those forcibly disappeared in Guerrero, Mexico, highly personal, emotional, the stuff of unrelenting dreams and nightmares. It marks a move away from the more removed, traditional third-person observer documentary work to a witnessing that involves one’s own grief and fears, articulating the phantasmagoric horror that surrounds the brutal facts of an unfathomable situation.
