Learn how to do effective activism on Duke's campus

 
 

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 members of the media. In Mexico, more than 50 journalists have been slain or have vanished since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderón came to power and launched a government offensive against the country’s powerful drug cartels and organized crime. As the drug war intensifies and the risks to journalists become greater, will the free press be silenced?

A panel will follow the film.

The film is an Official Selection of the 2012 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. 

This film screening is a part of the 2015-2016 Rights! Camera! Action! Film Series sponsored by the Duke Human Rights Center@FHI, the Center for Latin American and Caribbean Studies, and the Program for Arts and the Moving Image.

Parking is available in the Bryan Center lot. Click here for a map from the Bryan Center lot to the Rubenstein Library. The Edge is located next to Rubenstein Library in Bostock 127.
