The DocYard presents KINGDOM OF SHADOWS

Director Bernardo Ruiz will attend in person for Q&A moderated by Monika Navarro, documentary filmmaker and producer for WGBH WORLD Channel

Director: Bernardo Ruiz

Synopsis: In KINGDOM OF SHADOWS, 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, to reveal the human side of an often misunderstood conflict that has resulted in a growing human-rights crisis that only recently has made international headlines.

THE DOCYARD SPRING 2016 SHORTS PROGRAM

BORDERLANDPrior to this feature screening, the DocYard will present the short nonfiction film BORDERLAND (2010, 7:45 min) by Drea Cooper & Zackary Canepari.

About the Shorts Programming

For the Spring 2016 Season, The DocYard shorts have been programmed by The Non-Fiction Cartel with help from DER. The films, selected by Eric P. Gulliver (NFC) and Alijah Case (DER), were chosen to create a dialogue between the short form, the feature documentary, and the audience. The programming aims to showcase innovative short works across the decades, while acknowledging and contributing to the Boston area’s rich history of documentary filmmaking. Celebrating this documentary tradition, the selections represent The Non-Fiction Cartel’s continued collaborations between the Camden International Film Festival, DER, and FRONTLINE.
