A local priest got 120 released, many with broken ankles and other marks of abuse, but the rest vanished. Óscar Martínez, a young writer from El Salvador, was in Altar soon after the abduction, and his account of the migrant disappearances is only one of the harrowing stories he garnered from two years spent traveling up and down the migrant trail from Central America and across the US border. More than a quarter of a million Central Americans make this increasingly dangerous journey each year, and each year as many as 20,000 of them are kidnapped"--

Tras la muerte de su joven esposa, Francisco Goldman encuentra una inédita estrategia para superar la pena: aprender a manejar en la ciudad de México. La estrategia tiene un efecto secundario inesperado: una crónica magistral de la enrevesada actualidad mexicana: desde los feminicidios de Ciudad Juárez y la represión de los campesinos de Atenco hasta el asesinato de los jóvenes del bar Heavens, triste anuncio de Ayotzinapa. Pero también da cuenta de sus prodigios. Es la carta de amor a una ciudad y a un país. Y por encima de todo, se trata de un memoir en el sentido más original de la palabra, en el más internacional. Una crónica apegada al terreno, que da cuenta de los movimientos estudiantiles y cívicos que están teniendo lugar en México: dignidad política, humor y anécdotas. Alto periodismo y literatura

Men with guns = Los hombres armados by John Sayles( Visual )

3 editions published between 2002 and 2012 in Spanish and held by 6 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A powerful political allegory set in an unnamed Latin American country, Men With Guns concerns Dr. Fuentes (Federico Luppi), an elderly physician long involved with a group that trains young people to provide health care for the poverty-stricken citizens of the outlying hill country, where small agricultural communities struggle to survive under primitive living conditions. The doctor has heard rumors that many of his former students are lost and feared dead, so he goes into the hills to investigate. The deeper he digs into the jungle, the more Fuentes finds that the people are menaced by "men with guns'" military forces who use torture and execution to intimidate the people, and guerillas from opposition groups whose agenda is only marginally more benign. Accumulating several travelling companions a defrocked priest, a deserter from the Army, a boy who survives by stealing, and a woman who has turned mute since she was raped Fuentes finds that his journey becomes more revealing but also more perilous the deeper he ventures into the hills. American writer and director John Sayles filmed most of Men With Guns in Spanish (an language he speaks fluently), as well as several indigenous dialects; he claims to have based most of the film's incidents on actual events that have occurred in a number of different Third World nations. Mandy Patinkin has a brief role as an American tourist Fuentes encounters in his travels
