Colosio: The Assassination (Colosio: El Asesinato)
From the beginning, 1994 was a turbulent year in México. In March, Donaldo Colosio, the presidential candidate of the ruling party (PRI), is assassinated after a political rally in Tijuana. The whole country is appalled. The solitary assassin is arrested, but immediately rumors start to circulate about a conspiracy. Andrés Vazquez, a military intelligence officer, is appointed to lead a secret investigation running parallel to the official one. Meanwhile, El Seco, another military officer who specializes in selective murders, receives the order to eliminate all witnesses and withdraw all forensic evidence. The closer Captain Andres gets to placing all the pieces of the intricate puzzle together, the more he endangers his girlfriend’s life and his own.

This powerful film odyssey across America explores the sea change in our national attitude from pride in big dams as engineering wonders to the growing awareness that our own future is bound to the life and health of our rivers. Dam removal has moved beyond the fictional Monkey Wrench Gang to go mainstream. Where obsolete dams come down, rivers bound back to life, giving salmon and other wild fish the right of return to primeval spawning grounds, after decades without access. DamNation’s majestic cinematography and unexpected discoveries move through rivers and landscapes altered by dams, but also through a metamorphosis in values, from conquest of the natural world to knowing ourselves as part of nature.
