Featured Event: FAMS Visiting Filmmakers Series: Reportero and Bernardo Ruiz
- April 10, 2013 from 6:00 pm to 8:30 pm
Mason Hall, Meese Conference Room
Reportero follows veteran reporter Sergio Haro 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 the media. In Mexico, more than 50 journalists have been slain or have vanished since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderon came to power and launched a government offensive against the country's powerful drug cartels and organized crime groups. As the drug war intensifies and the risks of the journalists become greater, will the free press be silenced?
