Documentary About Mexican Cartel Violence Claims Success

The documentary "8 Murders a Day" directed my Charlie Minn, which hit the big screen February the 18th, is becoming a success in theaters around the U.S.

The film focuses on the city of "Cuidad Juarez", Chihuahua which borders with El Paso, Texas, where beheadings and executions have become a daily theme. The city has been  named "the most violent zone in the world outside declared war zones" and averages eight cartel-related murders a day since Mexican president Felipe Calderon declared war on all Mexican Drug Cartels on December 11, 2006. The two main cartels involved in the turf war in Juarez are the Sinaloa Cartel, which is lead my Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, and The Juarez Cartel, led by Vicente Carrillo Fuentes.

Below is the trailer for the documentary.
