A New Documentary Film/Nuevo Cine DOcumental

Last night we attended the Mexican premiere of the documentary On The Edge, a film about the continuing murders of women in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico, where more than 450 women have been killed with the authorities having done little to investigate the murders. The story is horrifying and the analysis sobering. If you have the opportunity to see the film, take advantage of it.

Anoche fuimos a ver la pelicula "En El Borde" sobre el tema de la violencia y asesinatos contra las mujeres en Ciudad Juarez, donde han muerto mas que 450 de ellas y las autoridades han hecho poco para investigarlos. La historia es horrible y su analisis grave. Si tienes la oportunidad para verla te la recomiendo.

How's TJ?

Glad you write so regularly.

I had a question: What do you know about presenting documentaries in TJ. I'm setting up a North America tour for a doc I shot on the coast of Oaxaca and I'm interested in including TJ on the stop.

If you're interested in the link, go to:

Anyway, thanks for any info you might send my way on venues.

Thank you,
