Amnesty International Tokyo English Network will show the multiple award-winning thrilling documentary “Cartel Land”. Over the endless drugs war, people of Mexico have been and are still dived into omnipresent violence, and the dramatic banalisation of torture. This film will help us understand better what is happening, through the lives of people from multiple sides.
« CARTEL LAND is a riveting, on-the-ground look at the journeys of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy – the murderous Mexican drug cartels. Filmmaker Matthew Heineman embeds himself in the heart of darkness as all those groups vie to bring their own brand of justice to a society where institutions have failed. CARTEL LAND is a chilling, visceral meditation on the breakdown of order and the blurry line between good and evil. »
