Carmen Aristegui won’t be silent. The anti-government investigative journalist and news anchor is one of the few voices in Mexico with the courage to tell the truth. In 2015, Carmen and her team were dismissed by the broadcaster and sued. It revealed the involvement of the then presidential Peña Nieto families in a real estate scandal. The population responded with protests and more than 200,000 people signed a petition. In addition to murders, intimidation and layoffs, the powerful in Mexico also use the judiciary to prevent critical journalism. For the journalist, the fight for freedom of the press begins. In her new independent internet channel “Aristegui Noticias”, millions of people around the world listen to her when she uncovered grievances. The film follows the indomitable woman as she continues to publish and maneuvers a team of investigative journalists through the poisoned Mexican media landscape. (Fanjul, MX CH 2019)
