MIER, Raymundo. Halcones: el film como creación de memoria política. Acta poét [online]. 2006, vol.27, n.2, pp.87-114. ISSN 2448-735X.

July 2nd. 1971. An episode of brutal repression of a student demonstration, carried on by disciplined groups of young men devoted to the undercover, anonymous and clandestine instrumentation of the State terrorism. A slaughter. The government covers up the violence with massive misinformation, the corruption of the media, suffocating lies. Next, the immediate imposition of general silence, the programmatic invention of oblivion. 2006: thirty five years later, a film that recovers unpublished material and testimonies. The reappearance of memory, of indignation, of shame. The following text is both and homage to the film and a reflection on the role of memory, of film work, of images, of testimonies, in the political struggle for democracy, still to come in Mexico.
