In 2006 Mexico declared war on drug trafficking and since then violence spread like wildfire throughout the country. Until today more than 120,000 people have died violently and thousands were forced into exile, kidnapped or disappeared. Before we are Forgotten is a real-life documentary about those who experienced this war, which still continues today. The same story and their suffering are told by parents, brothers, and children of the victims. The background to this terrible conflict, which left no corner of the country unaffected, is told by well-known Mexican sociologists, writers, artists, journalists, and politicians; the documentary gives us a glimpse into the gravest wound Mexico has ever suffered.

User Reviews: This is raw documentary and would be so no matter where it took place, but knowing it happened under bribery from a fabulously wealthy country to the North (which isn’t Catholic, or tribal, and doesn’t "get it") makes it even more more tragic.
"Poor Mexico — so far from God and so close to the United States!"
