In this prologue to the AMONG THE LIVING web-series, we meet Jose Pablo Baryabar, executive director of the Peruvian Forensic Anthropology Team (EPAF) and learn about the thousands of "disappearances" that occurred in Peru during the 1980s and 1990s.

Among the Living is a documentary film project of 77 International that examines the impact of forensic anthropology on human rights cases. While TV shows like CSI and Bones have brought forensic science into the public eye, we have little understanding of how this work is being used around the world. Not only does it provide evidence that can bring those responsible for crimes against humanity to justice, but it also plays a part in the healing process for societies that have been torn apart by violence.

Filmmakers Jason Mojica and Jim Milak (Christmas in Darfur?) will follow the Peruvian forensic anthropology team (EPAF) as they travel the countryside, opening mass graves in an attempt to connect them with the thousands of "disappearances" that occurred during the 1980s and 1990s.

Among the Living will put a human face on what are otherwise incomprehensible statistics, and it will help us understand what drives the men and women of EPAF in the face of such an overwhelming task.
