Video: “Tracing Aleida” director on making the film and Mexico’s “dirty war”

We mentioned the documentary “Tracing Aleida” back in May, which follows a woman’s search for her brother, from whom she was separated during Mexico’s “dirty war”.
Since then, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Christiane Burkhard, who filmed and directed the documentary, in her Mexico City home. The interview was for the Los Angeles Times, the edited version of which you can see here.
Below is a longer version of the interview with more insights from Burkhard.
