Movie Night for Entrepreneurial Journalists

JUST CONFIRMED: Filmmaker Bernardo Ruiz will be present for the screening and will answer questions from the audience.

Join us for our first movie night event! We've picked a fantastic 60-minute documentary called Reportero about bold journalists driven by a truth-telling mission.

This event is a collaboration with POV, PBS' award-winning nonfiction film series.

More background info on the film: 

Reportero follows a veteran reporter 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 members of the media. In Mexico, more than 50 journalists have been slain or have vanished since December 2006, when President Felipe Calderón came to power and launched a government offensive against the country’s powerful drug cartels and organized crime. As the drug war intensifies and the risks to journalists become greater, will the free press be silenced? An Official Selection of the 2012 Full Frame Documentary Film Festival. A co-production of Quiet Pictures, ITVS, and Latino Public Broadcasting with funding provided by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. A co-presentation with Latino Public Broadcasting.
