With unprecedented access, CARTEL LAND is a riveting, on-the-ground look at the journeys of two modern-day vigilante groups on opposite sides of the U.S.-Mexico border and their shared enemy – the murderous Mexican drug cartels. Filmmaker Matthew Heineman embeds himself in the heart of darkness as the vigilante groups and the cartel each vie to bring their own brand of justice to a society where institutions have failed. From executive producer Kathryn Bigelow (THE HURT LOCKER, ZERO DARK THIRTY), CARTEL LAND is a chilling, visceral meditation on the breakdown of order and the blurry line between good and evil.
“A jaw-dropping documentary.” – David Lewis, San Francisco Chronicle
“CARTEL LAND feels like Breaking Bad in real life, with characters even more complicated and controversial than Walter White.” – Aleksandr Gorbachev, Newsweek
“The key to success in vérité-style documentaries is “access, access, access.” Which is what CARTEL LAND has in compelling amounts.” – Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times
