World-renowned artist and political activist Ai Weiwei tells a story of Mexican government corruption through the families of 43 forcibly disappeared students.

Vivos crackles with the political fire that burns in the wake of the mass vanishing of students on their way to a protest in September 2014, illuminating the torment for the students’ families. Documenting rampant corruption in Mexico’s military, police and legal establishments, Ai Weiwei crafts a haunting expose through reserved photography and patient editing and places the families’ emotional pleas for justice at the core of this powerful film.
