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.
