Must Watch: First Trailer for Incredible Documentary 'Cartel Land'
"I believe what I am doing is good, and what I am standing up against is evil." The Orchard has unveiled the first official trailer for the documentary Cartel Land, one of the best documentaries this year, hands down. This first premiered at Sundance and has played at numerous festivals all over the world, and is getting quite a bit of acclaim because it's a hell of a film. Cartel Land documents two stories, one from each side of the border, in the increasingly violent struggle between cartels and peaceful people on the US-Mexico border. You may think you've seen and heard all this already, but the footage in Cartel Land is incredible, and he presents a devastatingly dire looking at the situation. And that's why this documentary must be seen.
Here's the first trailer for Matthew Heineman's documentary Cartel Land, found via The Film Stage:
Matthew Heineman's Cartel Land is a classic western set in the 21st century, pitting vigilantes on both sides of the border against the vicious Mexican drug cartels. With unprecedented access, this character-driven film provokes deep questions about lawlessness, the breakdown of order, and whether it is just for citizens to take up arms to fight violence with violence. Cartel Land is directed by Matthew Heineman, who embedded himself with these people to get this incredible footage. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and won the Documentary Directing Award plus a Special Jury Award for Cinematography. The Orchard will release Cartel Land in select US theaters starting July 3rd this summer. It is a must see doc.
