Read "Mexico:Reporting Under Threat" by Yolanda Martinez in the Fall 2015 Berkeley Review of Latin American Studies.

“Reportero” follows a veteran reporter and his colleagues at Zeta, a Tijuana-based independent newsweekly, in one of the deadliest places in the world for the media. As the drug war intensifies in Mexico and the risks to journalists become greater, will the free press be silenced? 72 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.

The film will be followed by a discussion with the film’s director.

“A solidly constructed, well-shot docu about the lethal perils of truth-telling south of the border” —Ronnie Scheib, Variety

A reception will be held prior to the screening at 7 pm (Graduate School of Journalism Courtyard, North Gate Hall).

Co-sponsored with the National Association of Hispanic Journalists- UC Berkeley Student Chapter.
