If there’s one form of entertainment I love to kick back and enjoy on a rainy Sunday, it’s a well made doc (e.g. Woodstock).  Actually, I’ll even tolerate a mediocre one (The Queen of Versailles) or a gimmicky one (Super Size Me) if the story’s good enough.

This week’s vid falls cleanly into the first category. “Mexico’s Female Crime Journalists,” produced by Vice.com, tells the compelling story of the journos who cover Mexico’s incredibly violent drug war in Ciudad Juarez.  

If you’re not familiar with the details and extent of narco-terrorism in that country, this recent article from The Atlantic is an excellent summary to get you up to speed before you dive into the vid.

Also, if you’re sensitive to blood, gore, or violence, be warned that the below contains all three.

Have a safe weekend! And, if you’re travelling anywhere near Ciudad Juarez, be careful out there.
