Regent Street Cinema Presents: Cartel Land

An explosive documentary about border vigilantes

Take a step into British cinematic history at the Regent Street Cinema. Britain's oldest cinema, it was the first place in the country to ever show moving pictures. It kickstarted British cinema with a screening of Cinematographe in 1896. Now, you can catch a special screening of the double Sundance winner, Cartel Land, presented by the Oscar winning Hurt Locker director Kathryn Bigelow. In this incredible documentary, Matthew Heineman takes us deep into the world of Mexican drug cartels by embedding himself with two vigilante groups on either side of the US-Mexico border. In Arizona’s Altar Valley — known as Cocaine Alley — Tim Foley heads a paramilitary group whose goal is to halt Mexico’s drug wars from crossing the border. Meanwhile, in Michoacán, Dr Jose Mireles shepherds a citizen uprising against the Knights Templar cartel. A visceral journey into North America’s heart of darkness, Cartel Land is a chilling meditation on the breakdown of order and the borderline where life trumps law. "Cartel Land reveals a culture that spans the border, full of death and dismaying behavior on both sides, but thriving all the same." – Washington Post Certificate: 15. Running time: 1 hour 38 minutes.
