This explosive blend of history, art and crime literature explores how a new generation of Latin American novelists found in noir fiction a unique way to confront their countries' troubled pasts and presents. Greek documentarian and author Andreas Apostolidis travels to five Latin American cities to meet with famous crime novelists Leonardo Padura (Havana), Luis Sepulveda (Santiago), Paco Ignacio Taibo II (Mexico City), Santiago Roncagliolo (Lima) and Claudia Pineiro (Buenos Aires). Through their stories, a unique genre of flourishing literature is revealed, strikingly different from its North American or Nordic counterparts: it's political, dark — and the crimes are often committed by the state itself.
