In Mexico, as cartels thrive and grow ever more ruthless, violence has become ingrained in every day life. Everardo González’s gripping Devil’s Freedom reveals the true horror of life in a country haunted by disappearances, murder and torture through the shattering first-hand testimonies of both victims and perpetrators.
Wearing roughly-cut, flesh-coloured masks to protect their identities, González’s interviewees tell their stories with candid intimacy. With their faces hidden behind these grotesque, expressionless disguises, the distinctions between perpetrators and victims become less clear, creating a nightmarish vision of a society gripped by violence and fear.
Devil's Freedom will play on an exclusive limited run at Bertha DocHouse for one week only from 6th April.
