LuisCarlos Davis' first documentary, 369 Miles: Living the Border, was a well-received documentary that Davis put a lot of his heart into as someone who grew up on both sides of the border.
Tonight at 9 p.m. you can see Davis' next work, La Industria, which makes its online debut on his production company's YouTube channel, Fence Productions.
Synopsis of La Industria:
In many parts of Mexico, there's an informal industry sprouting perpetrated by organized criminals, extortionists, and kidnappers. This is a very lucrative industry relying on extensive kidnapping techniques. In many cases, if authorizes are warned or a family members make a wrong move, the prey never makes it back home. Victor, a local orange vendor receives a call letting him know that his wife Bea has been kidnapped and demanding that if he does not make a cash deposit within 20 minutes after the call, he will receive the head of his wife at his doorstep.
