sq_cartel_landCARTEL LAND es una visión desgarradora de dos grupos de vigilantes modernos y su enemigo común, los asesinos cárteles de la droga mejicanos. En el estado mejicano de Michoacán, el doctor José Mireles, un médico de una pequeña ciudad conocido como El Doctor, dirige a los Autodefensas, una revuelta ciudadana contra el violento cártel de la droga de los Caballeros Templarios. Mientras tanto, en el valle Altar de Arizona, Tim «Nailer» Foley, un Veterano de EE.UU., encabeza un grupo paramilitar, Arizona Border Recon, cuyo objetivo es evitar que la guerra de la droga de Méjico se filtre en su frontera. El cineasta Matthew Heineman se infiltra en el corazón de la oscuridad mientras Nailer, El Doctor y el cártel compiten por imponer su propia justicia donde las instituciones no lo han conseguido.

sundance.org When your government cannot provide basic safety from murderous organized criminals, is it acceptable to take the law into your own hands to protect your family, your land, and your country? That is the question at the heart of Cartel Land, a powerfully visceral journey of two modern-day vigilante movements.

In the Mexican state of Michoacán, Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town physician known as “El Doctor,” shepherds a citizen uprising against the Knights Templar, the violent drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona’s Altar Valley—a narrow, 52-mile-long desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley—Tim “Nailer” Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon, whose goal is to halt Mexico’s drug wars from seeping across our border.

Intrepid filmmaker Matthew Heineman (Escape Fire) embeds himself in the heart of darkness as Nailer, El Doctor, and the cartel each vie to bring their own brand of justice to a society where institutions have failed. Brilliant, dangerous, and provocative, Cartel Land is a chilling meditation on the breakdown of order and the borderline where life trumps law. —D.C.
