REPORTERO, KINGDOM OF SHADOWS: Bernardo Ruiz Interview with Robert A. Mitchell
The In Light Human Rights Documentary film festival took place in Bloomington, Indiana at Indiana University March 5 to 7th. One of the films that was screened was Reportero. The documentary follows veteran crime reporter Sergio Haro and his colleagues at the news weekly Zeta. A paper based in the Mexicali region of Mexico.
The statistics are harrowing, according to Reporters Without Borders from the years 2000 to 2013: 88 journalists have been killed in Mexico with another 18 missing.
I had the opportunity to speak with writer and director Bernardo Ruiz about Reportero and his latest film Kingdom of Shadows.
