The Engineer + Q&A

It might sound like the latest CSI, but this is a grimly true story

Israel Ticas’ life hinges on danger. He’s El Salvador’s only criminologist and regularly uncovers mass graves filled with missing teenagers, brutal victims of gang warfare. His nickname is The Engineer, as he fuses forensic skills with his background in system engineering to get the job done. This documentary follows him in 2012, when two of the biggest gangs declared a truce. But although the murder rate dramatically fell, it doesn’t account for the whole story. General admission. Best available seating allocated by the venue on arrival. Please arrive on time as latecomers may not be admitted. The screening will be followed by a Q&A with directors Mathew Charles and Juan Passarelli.
