I Will Be Murdered Synopsis

I Will Be Murdered is a feature-length documentary that portrays the astonishing, real-life story of a lawyer who launched a personal crusade in search of justice, and brought his country to the brink of chaos.


On a Sunday morning in May, 2009, Rodrigo Rosenberg, a wealthy, charismatic lawyer was gunned down near his home in Guatemala City. Nothing unusual in that, as the country was suffering one of the highest homicide rates in the world. What was extraordinary was that he knew he was going to be killed.


Two of Rosenberg’s clients had been murdered a few weeks before. He was driven to investigate a case which, he told his friends, he feared would lead to his death. A video he recorded days before he died accused the president of his murder. Uploaded to Youtube, it nearly brought down the government. Thousands took to the street in protest.


A special prosecutor began an investigation, a journey into Rosenberg’s soul and Guatemala’s hell, that after multiple twists and turns, reached a stunning revelation. Told through Carlos Castresana, the investigator, and Eduardo Rosenberg, Rodrigo’s son, amongst others, this is a thrilling, and disturbing, stranger-than-fiction story.

Watching this movie will make you ask countless questions!  So many speculations have come out because of Rosenberg' s murder and with the method he used in foreseeing his death. Accusing the Guatemalan president was like an atomic bomb launched in the middle of a metropolis and you know what the effect would be. At the end of the film, with the final verdict given and the master plan exposed for all, still, there is room for doubts and confusion. As his son has always stressed, his father was an honourable man. This movie sparked massive controversy not only within Guatemala but even among other countries and has exposed countless social ills that's been existing as old as time itself. Well-crafted film by director Justin Weber who's also known for films like Barca: The Inside Story. This movie earned awards from the Havana Film Festival and Sao Paulo International Film Festival. Worth watching!

I've long been a fan of mystery and thriller fiction films and books but this movie about Rodrigo Rosenberg's murder is undoubtedly one of the craftiest and hard to crack one!  As it's always been said, truth is stranger than fiction, and I can't agree more! This documentary unfolds clearly and well-paced with numerous interviews from relatives, friends and authorities. Brace yourself for disturbing and revealing facts with this film that's directed by Justin Webster. This is just one example of how very powerful various media is, including social media and of how one murder can snowball into one great force that could even topple a government or destroy people's lives forever. Definitely worth checking out!
