Documentaries. The society we can never change?

2008, Ciudad Neza and the great metropolis. The characters are all young adults between 38 and 45. They share three things: they grew up in CiudadNeza, they belonged to the same gang “Los Mierdas Punk” (The PunkShits) and they all starred in the documentary “Nadieesinocente” (Nobody is innocent), filmed in 1986 by Sarah Minter. Now, twenty years later, she shows us their current lives and their memories of the past, reconstructing their footprints and weaves a new visual map of the city and other geographies through these characters’ present as they confront their achievements, frustrations and the nostalgia for their past and youthful dreams.
