POV: Kingdom of Shadows

About This Episode


Filmmaker Bernardo Ruiz (Reportero) takes an unflinching look at the hard choices and destructive consequences of the U.S.-Mexico drug war. Weaving together the stories of a U.S. drug enforcement agent on the border, an activist nun in violence-scarred Monterrey, Mexico, and a former Texas smuggler, Kingdom of Shadows bears witness to the human side of an often misunderstood conflict that has resulted in a growing human rights crisis that only recently has made international headlines.
