I Am Vanessa Guillen
I Am Vanessa Guillen directed by Christy Wegener (Netflix)

Netflix debuted the official trailer for I Am Vanessa Guillen, the documentary tells the story of Vanessa Guillen, who was 20 years old when she was found murdered at a US Army base. Rather than submit to silence, her family fought for justice and change.

Directed by Christy Wegener, I Am Vanessa Guillen will be released on Netflix on November 17, 2022.

When a young Mexican-American soldier vanishes from a U.S. Army base, her family leads an international movement to find her and expose ongoing corruption within the military ranks. Vanessa Guillen always dreamed of joining the U.S. Army, but after reporting being sexually harassed at Fort Hood in Texas, she disappeared. After a two-month search, her remains were found in a nearby rural area, sparking rage at Army officials and a fight for justice.

The film follows Vanessa’s sisters Lupe and Mayra as they carry her name from protests in the streets to the halls of power in Washington, D.C., and offers a behind-the-scenes look at their tenacious pursuit to change a deeply rooted, controversial military justice system.

Featuring interviews with family and friends as well as elected officials like Rep. Jackie Spears and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, I Am Vanessa Guillen is a bracing, candid testament to what a family’s love can do, even in the face of unimaginable grief.
