Mexico: In Search of Lost Migrants
by Alex Gohari and Léo Mattei [France/Germany 2018, 24′ (v.o. sott.)]

Former Mexican illegal immigrant Ruben Figueroa has set himself a goal: find migrants who disappear while fleeing poverty in their own country in order to find work and a better life in the United States.

In his quest, he found out that some have disappeared during their voyage on “La Bestia”, the freight train that takes them to the US border, some others, mostly women, have ended up in Chiapas brothels. He just needs to find them, dead or alive.
