About the Documentary
9 mm caliber bullets, five people have been murdered, journalists get death threats, political exiles and, behind it all, the shadow of the Governor and political intrigues. The murders were carried out in broad daylight and caused a havoc in the journalist milieu, with indignation towards the evident pressures they were subjected to.
In Broad Daylight: The Narvarte Case brings us closer to the victim’s stories, their families and slowly but surely tries ot explain what was behind these five very dark crimes, which at first glance might have seemed unrelated (or not) and that (according to the documentary) point to the same culprit.
True crime documentaries tend to take on a more police investigative angle. On this occasion though, it veers more leaning on the journalistic chronicle, using media and archive footage, and interviews with not only the family members to the deceased victims, but also journalists and academics. As a documentary it is well elaborated with the footage, interviews and dramatizations.
