REPORTERO: Passion, Photography & Human Rights at MoPA

Please join fellow San Diego Photography members at the screening of REPORTERO at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival next Friday January 25. Film begins at 7, but please arrive at 6:30 to collect your tickets. The film screening will be followed with a discussion with filmmaker Bernardo Ruiz, and Mexican photo journalist Sergio Haro.

In his work with ZETA, a newspaper in Mexico, Sergio Haro is turning his camera lens on corruption and violence in Tijuana. Uncovering corruption and outing drug-lords is not an easy job - and Sergio has been the recipient of multiple death threats, and has watched as his colleagues have been killed one by one. Yet, Sergio remains committed to the fight for human rights and safety in his community. His passion for photography lead him down an unexpected path, and there is no turning back.

Tickets are $4 for MOPA members, $4 MOPA Members, $6 Students/Seniors/Military, $8 General public. If I can get 15 or more members to sign up - tickets will be $5 each for adults. Please RSVP as soon as possible. I will collect your names and keep them at the information desk at Museum of Photographic Arts. You can pick up and pay for your ticket when you see me at the event.

Here is the film description: Reportero follows a veteran reporter, Sergio Haro, and his colleagues at Zeta, a Tijuana, Mexico-based weekly, as they work in what has become one of the most deadly places in the world to be a journalist.

    I was a half hour late but found it to be compelling. I admire their courage for reporting. I wish I could have arrived sooner so I could meet the other members.

    Hope someone can take some photos of the event to post here on our website. It should have it's own gallery which can be found on the top of this event page after the event takes place. Thanks!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
