September 26 marks the one-year anniversary when more than 100 young students, from the Escuela Normal Rural of Ayotzinapa, were attacked by local police, resulting in the deaths of 3 students, more then 20 injured, and the mass kidnapping of 43 male students. Since the students’ disappearances, their parents, along with the rest of the world, have pressed the Mexican government for an explanation of what happened to their sons.
The report the Mexican attorney general released said that the kidnapped students’ bodies had been burned to ashes in a nearby town by the local drug cartel. Yet, following a six-month investigation, a team of experts from the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights (IAHCR) released their final report on Sunday, September 6,  refuting the Mexican government’s explanation.
Now, the United Nations is calling on Mexican President Enrique Peña Nieto to take action and follow up on the recommendations made in the report. Also, international pressure on the Mexican government to produce an honest investigation into the disappearances goes on.
Filmmaker Xavier Robles decided it was time to expose the truth about Mexico, and the struggle in the pursuit of justice for the 43 missing students, with a new documentary — Ayotzinapa: Chronicle of a State Crime.
