synopsis

On July 14th, 2014, Roberto Corrales disappeared. His mother, Mirna Nereida, reached out to the authorities and asked for help, but her request was met with refusal. In the absence of authority and rule of law, Mirna founded Las Rastreadoras de El Fuerte, a collective of women who go to the desert in Sinaloa with pickaxes and shovels in search of their disappeared children. For years, they have endured violence, abuse from government authorities, who are often colluded with organized crime groups, as well as society’s indifference. I Called for You in Silence takes an intimate look at the Rastreadoras daily struggle and their efforts to keep hope alive to continue searching for their loved ones.
