Description
Journalists are being murdered in Mexico, which has become one of the most dangerous countries for this profession. El Paso follows two Mexican journalists exiled to the city of El Paso, Texas, and the human rights lawyer who advocates for their safety. Directed by Everardo González -- who after a handful of critically lauded documentaries has earned a reputation as one of Mexico's preeminent documentary journalists -- El Paso focuses on the story of Alejandro Hernández Pacheco, a Televisa cameraman from Torreón who was kidnapped after filming a report in a local prison, and Ricardo Chávez Aldana, a Juárez radio personality who began to use his program to speak openly about the individuals involved in a bloody turf war. While Hernández struggles to adapt to life on the other side of the Río Bravo with a large family and autistic son, Chávez gets by working at a local fast food restaurant, tormented by the possibility that his own cousins were murdered on his account. In a sometimes raw style, contrasting interviews with observational footage, Gónzalez reminds us just why the United States is still a haven for individuals fleeing persecution.
