Mexico: Seven Days in Hell

Channel 4

Unreported World

Go to About Section

Unreported World travels to Mexico where demand for cocaine from the US and Europe has led to the deaths of thousands in a brutal war between gangs fighting for control of drug trafficking routes.

The killing is relentless. It includes gang members, police officers and innocent victims. Every few hours the team is called to another killing, dumped body, kidnapping or victim of a shoot-out. Reporter Evan Williams and Director Alex Nott provide a snapshot of seven days of death in northern city of Culiacan.

"As ever, Unreported World raises many good questions, not the least of which is: why aren't there more programmes like this?"
- Guardian

"…the film leaves one stunned at the scale of the killings"
- Observer
