From Oscar-winning producer Kathryn Bigelow comes “Cartel Land,” director Matthew Heineman’s documentary film about the Mexican drug war and vigilantes on both sides of the US-Mexican border.

The film focuses on militiaman Tim “Nailer” Foley, the leader of Arizona Border Recon, and Dr. José Mireles, a Michoacán-based medical doctor who doubles as the head of the Autodefensas.

A dramatic and surprising story, the film is a must-see for everyone trying to understand the risky business of vigilantism.
