Victims and predators behind the same mask

Ruthless drug cartels and a spectacularly unsuccessful war against drugs have turned Mexican society into a place where anyone can become the victim of grotesque and brutal violence. In the inventive and oddly resonant DEVIL’S FREEDOM Everardo González approaches this sad and absurd state of affairs by interviewing victims and perpetrators of violence side by side wearing beige compression masks which eliminate their facial expressions. The result is a documentary that looks beyond the question of injustice to examine the nature of violence itself.
