Hispanic Film Series – LA ISLA MINIMA (Marshlands)

Elijah Jimenez ’18 writes in:

The Spanish deep South, 1980. A series of brutal murders of adolescent
girls in a remote and forgotten town bring together two disparate
characters – both detectives in the homicide division – to investigate
the cases. With deep divisions in their ideology, detectives Juan and
Pedro must put aside their differences if they are to successfully
hunt down a killer who for years has terrorized a community in the
shadow of a general disregard for women rooted in a misogynistic
past. In Spanish with English subtitles.
