Cartel Land

When: Sat., July 18, 7 p.m. 2015

With its lens trained on two vigilante groups fighting drug cartel violence on opposite sides of the U.S-Mexico border, Matthew Heineman’s daring documentary Cartel Land boasts all the suspense of a narrative film. Following leaders Dr. Jose Mireles (aka “El Doctor”), of Michoacán’s Autodefensa, and Tim “Nailer” Foley, of Arizona Border Recon, Cartel Land has been described as both “a classic western set in the 21st century” and “a crazy, violent trip into Mexico’s deadly drug war and America’s border paranoia.” The Guadalupe premieres the doc in advance of its official release next week.
