    Reportage Online

    Conflict presents itself in many guises. The drug wars in the Mexican border town of Juarez, the world’s homicide capital, take an obvious toll through the deaths of thousands each year. However, this deadly battle has more subtle consequences on the US side of the border, including the development of narcocorridos: music that glamorizes the violence and luxurious lifestyles of the gangsters.

    In his upcoming film “Narco Cultura,” filmmaker and photographer Shaul Schwarz lays bare the stark contrast between the two sides of the story through the lives of two characters – crime scene investigator, Rich Soto, and Narco Corrido singer/songwriter, Edgar Quintero.
