Although he’s famous for his safety, knowing the enormous power he had and the influence he still holds in Mexican politics, former president Carlos Salinas de Gortari is a little unsettled when asked to appear before the cameras, so he laughs and asks: “Do you want me to give you a summary of my CV?”
Thus begins “1994,” the most recent documentary series from journalist Diego Enrique Osorno.
The series is divided into five episodes of 45 minutes each, in which Osorno faces the challenging task of analyzing one of the most fascinating and painful years in the contemporary history of Mexico.
When asked why he chose that specific period to focus his new documentary series, the journalist smiles and explains: “Throughout my work as a reporter there was always a character or something that reminded me that the beginning of everything began in ’94. My feeling is that something ended that year, and a series of changes began. ”
“1994” is available now on Netflix.
