Cartel Land

Cartel Land
USA (98 min.) Documentary Feature
DIR Matthew Heineman

With unprecedented access, CARTEL LAND is a riveting, on-the-ground look at the journeys of two modern-day vigilante groups and their shared enemy – the murderous Mexican drug cartels.
In the Mexican state of Michoacán, Dr. Jose Mireles, a small-town physician known as "El Doctor," leads the Autodefensas, a citizen uprising against the violent Knights Templar drug cartel that has wreaked havoc on the region for years. Meanwhile, in Arizona's Altar Valley – a narrow, 52-mile-long desert corridor known as Cocaine Alley – Tim "Nailer" Foley, an American veteran, heads a small paramilitary group called Arizona Border Recon, whose goal is to stop Mexico’s drug wars from seeping across our border.

Filmmaker Matthew Heineman embeds himself in the heart of darkness as Nailer, El Doctor, 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. At the 2015 Sundance Film Festival, Heineman received both the Directing Award and Special Jury Award for Cinematography in the U.S. Documentary competition.

Peeled Faces on the Amazon: The Story of the Amazon Express
USA (102 min.) Documentary Feature
DIR West Hansen, Ian Prikryl, Steve Lewis

This is the account of the first expedition to paddle the entire 4200 mile length of the Amazon River from its newly discovered most distant source at 14,600 elevation in the Peruvian Andes to the Atlantic Ocean in Brazil. Sponsored by a National Geographic Explorers grant and two years of fund raising, the Amazon Express expedition was led by Texas native, first time explorer, West Hansen. The team included young adrenalin junkie white water yahoos and old curmudgeons who should have known better. This documentary captures the first film footage of the Mantaro River, which makes up the initial 500 miles of the Amazon River basin. In 2012, after surviving the deadly rapids, the team covered the final 3600 miles while being held at gunpoint five times, surviving jungle rot, team strife, sickness, narcotraffickers, massive tidal surges and numerous other obstacles. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the ride.

Since: The Bombing of Pan Am Flight 103
USA (86 min.) Documentary Feature
DIR Phil Furey

Four days before Christmas in 1988, Pan Am Flight 103, a 747 jumbo jet full of families, college students, travelers and airplane crew, broke apart in the skies six miles above Lockerbie, Scotland, killing 259 on the plane and 11 people on the ground. Days later, a terrorist bomb was blamed. Outraged by preventable lapses in airline security and a callous U.S. government that wanted them to disappear, American relatives of those killed on the New York-bound flight used the media as a weapon and began a massive public campaign for answers – they were not going to go away quietly. Decades later, after a hard-won criminal conviction, the families watched powerlessly as justice unraveled for a trillion-dollar oil deal held ransom by Libya's maniacal dictator, Muammar Gaddafi.

Zion National Park is known for its stunning landscapes. But it is also home to wild adventures. The relatively new sport of canyoneering has seen a huge increase in popularity. And Zion is one of the world's premiere destinations for exploring technical slot canyons. Yet slot canyons pose lethal dangers, none more terrifying than flash floods. The national park is also a staple in the climbing world. And despite its history, big-wall climbers are still establishing new climbing routes and developing whole new climbing areas that are otherwise untouched and unclimbed.

Peeled Faces on the Amazon: The Story of the Amazon Express
USA (102 min.) Documentary Feature
DIR West Hansen, Ian Prikryl, Steve Lewis

This is the account of the first expedition to paddle the entire 4200 mile length of the Amazon River from its newly discovered most distant source at 14,600 elevation in the Peruvian Andes to the Atlantic Ocean in Brazil. Sponsored by a National Geographic Explorers grant and two years of fund raising, the Amazon Express expedition was led by Texas native, first time explorer, West Hansen. The team included young adrenalin junkie white water yahoos and old curmudgeons who should have known better. This documentary captures the first film footage of the Mantaro River, which makes up the initial 500 miles of the Amazon River basin. In 2012, after surviving the deadly rapids, the team covered the final 3600 miles while being held at gunpoint five times, surviving jungle rot, team strife, sickness, narcotraffickers, massive tidal surges and numerous other obstacles. I’m sure you’ll enjoy the ride.
