Our interview with Matthew Heineman, director of CARTEL LAND at AFI DOCS 2015.
About the film: Filmmaker Matthew Heineman (ESCAPE FIRE: THE FIGHT TO RESCUE AMERICAN HEALTHCARE) returns to AFI DOCS with a probing look inside the Wild West atmosphere of the drug war in Mexico. With astounding ground-level access, Heineman immerses himself in danger to follow a citizen uprising against the encroaching drug cartels. When government, police and sometimes even neighbors can’t be trusted, for some the only answer is to fight fire with fire.
