Virgin of Juarez synopsis.
30 April 2006 | by Jackie MoldauSee all my reviews

Great movie. Superb direction by Director/Producer Kevin James Dobson. Good for him for selecting this subject in order to raise awareness of these horrid events that have still been taking place on the border of El Paso Texas, in Juarez, Mexico. Currently at Film Fesitval nationwide. Great photo-doubling ;).

Journalist, Katrina (played by Minnie Driver), attempts to uncover the mystery behind the Juarez murders and subsequent burial in a vast field on the outskirts of town, of young girls (based on current true story). Looking forward to seeing the next Kevin Dobson project!
