About this Performance
In 2019, Cristina Rivera Garza traveled from her home in Texas to Mexico City, in search of an old unresolved criminal file. “My name is Cristina Rivera Garza,” she wrote in her request to the attorney general, “and I am writing to you as a relative of Liliana Rivera, who was murdered on July 16, 1990.” Knowing there is only a slim chance of recovering the file, Cristina is inspired by feminist movements across the world and enraged by the global epidemic of femicide and embarks on a path toward justice. This is her account and the outcome of an amazing journey.
