In Mexico, as cartels thrive and grow ever more ruthless, the phenomenon of violence has emerged as a tragic feature of the country’s life and subcon- scious. Through rsthand testimonies of victims as well as perpetrators, Devil’s Freedom explores how fear and uncertainty have penetrated every level of Mexican society asking what meaning is to be found in this violence and the profound fear it engenders.
More than a lm about the violent deeds them- selves, Devil’s Freedom is a psychological plunge into the nightmares and absence that so many dead bodies leave in their wake. The interplay of these personal stories form a complex network with universal echoes, a re ection on the nature of our deepest fears and the most obscure traits of the human psyche.
