Reportero (POV 2012) will premiere in New York as part of the Human Rights Watch Film Festival. See screening details below.

Description from Human Rights Watch Film Festival:

Human Rights Watch has documented an alarming rise in attacks and threats against journalists and human rights defenders in the context of Mexico’s “war on drugs,” virtually none of which are adequately investigated. Human Rights Watch’s most recent report on Mexico—Neither Rights Nor Security—documents killings, disappearances, and torture committed by security forces in five of the Mexican states most-affected by drug-related violence, including Baja California, where Zeta is published. Several of the cases of torture documented by Human Rights Watch in Tijuana were covered in the pages of Zeta [the Mexico-based weekly newspaper featured in the film Reportero].
