Encender el Corazon
… After suspecting this film was being used to support an alleged criminal enterprise, Mark pulled the film from distribution in October 2017 and endeavored to expose the alleged criminal behavior of the enterprise. An article in the Mexican Journal ‘Letras Libres’ chronicles his realizations:
Mark has since developed a keen and passionate interest in understanding the coercive and duplicitous environments of high-control groups.
Encender el Corazon (Ignite the Heart) is a docu-drama which began shooting in 2008, when filmmaker Mark Vicente (What the Bleep, Sarafina) began documenting the efforts of the non-violent citizens movement; Inlakech. While searching for Mexicans of character they came upon a series of remarkable people, each doing what they can to challenge a common enemy: Violence of one Mexican upon another Mexican.
The film is the result of more than seven-hundred hours of footage captured over an 8 year period. The perspective from which the questions were asked, and the sensitive approach of the filmmakers, brings to the screen a unique mosaic of deep emotionality and human honesty.
This project has taken the filmmakers on a journey from the enclaves of the wealthy… to extreme poverty in the slums … to the police and kidnapping units struggling with violence… to kidnappers serving life terms in prison… to everyday citizens doing their part to heal the soul of their country. This film was made to give voice to those Mexicans who are laying their lives on the line for a dream: the dream of a national identity that is noble, courageous, and above all peaceful.
