Mark McLoughlin Brings Documentary "Blood Rising" To UAlbany
During the past 20 years, approximately 1,400 girls who are poor and work in the factories of Juarez, Mexico have been abducted, sexually abused and then murdered. Their story and the story of an Irish artist who is working to keep their memories alive are told in the film Blood Rising, to be shown tonight at 7 at the University at Albany's Recital Hall. Admission is free. The director Mark McLoughlin, the arist profiled in the film, Brian MaGuire, and Marisela Ortiz-Rivera, the mother of one of the murdered women of Juarez, will be at tonight's screening.
