"FAMS Visiting Filmmakers Series: Reportero and Bernardo Ruiz"
March 6, 2013 from 4:30 pm to 7:00 pm
Johnson Center, Cinema
Reportero follows veteran reporter Sergio Haro 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 the media. In Mexico, more than 
50 journalists have been slain or have vanished since December 2006, when 
President Felipe Calderon came to power and launched a government offensive 
against the country's powerful drug cartels and organized crime groups. As the 
drug war intensifies and the risks of the journalists become greater, will the 
free press be silenced?
