Jailed Mexican vigilante leader applauds Cartel Land's Oscar nomination

Fusion recently sat down with U.S. filmmaker Matthew Heineman to talk about his Oscar nomination for his critically acclaimed documentary “Cartel Land”, which gives a chilling look at vigilante movements on both sides of the Mexico border.

To produce his film, Heineman embedded with Mexico’s vigilante movement for nearly a year, and delivered a brutal portrayal of how the drug war has blurred the lines between good and evil.

Fusion also obtained an audio recording from incarcerated vigilante leader Jose Manuel Mireles, who congratulates Heineman on the film that brought the two men together.
