Join us this Wednesday, July 18, for a special screening of Reportero and a Q&A with the director, Bernardo Ruiz.
Reportero follows a veteran reporter and his colleagues at Zeta, a Tijuana-based independent newsweekly, as they stubbornly ply their trade in one of the deadliest places in the world for the media. In Mexico, more than 40 journalists have been slain or have vanished since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderôn came to power and launched a government offensive against the country's powerful drug cartels and organized crime groups. As the drug war intensifies and the risks to journalists become greater, will the free press be silenced?
Tickets are $20 per guest. Ticket holders will recieve a complimentary subscription to the NACLA Report on the Americas.
When: July 18 at 7:30 pm
Where: Spanish Benevolent Society, 239 West 14th Street
