Cartel Land

by Matthew Heineman Border Lines

Drug cartels are covering Mexico in a shroud of murder and terror. But opposition from normal citizens is on the rise: people in Southern Mexico have turned to guns in the violent fight against the cartels’ influence. The leader of the ‘Autodefensas’, as they call themselves, is Dr. José “El Doctor” Mireles. The men free one city after another from the violence of the clans. At the same time, ex-soldier Tim ‘Nailer’ Foley from the US state of Arizona formes a paramilitary group of self-proclaimed, heavily armed border guards at the Mexican frontier. While a brutal battle between the civilian defenders and the cartels rages, the question is raised as to where the line between good and evil lies. CARTEL LAND is a fascinating documentary thriller, for which filmmaker Matthew Heineman risked his life.
