What really happened to the 43 Mexican college students who were “forcibly disappeared” on the night of Sept. 26, 2014?

That’s the question “Vivos,” a new documentary from acclaimed artist Ai Weiwei, sets out to answer.

The convoy of students from Ayotzinapa Rural Teachers’ College were traveling by bus through the drug cartel-afflicted state of Guerrero when they were brutally attacked by masked assailants abetted by the police.

Six people were killed, dozens were wounded, and 43 students disappeared.  Their fate is still unknown.

“Vivos” premieres January 24 at the Sundance Film Festival.
