6.30 p.m : Conference by Emmanuel Vincenot (Paris Est Marne-la-Vallée University): “Narco Cinema : the New Mexican Popular Cinema ?”

7p.m: Screening of a documentary on violence in Guerrero (Directed by B.L., Mexico, 2017)

The aim of this event is to think about the new cinematographic treatment of drug-trafficking. Emmanuel Vincenot’s conference will deal with the fiction which emerged from “narco-culture”, while the documentary will illustrate the denunciation of violence arising from narco-traffic in Guerrero, a state located in the south-west of Mexico, and particularly concerned by this phenomenon.
