"Narco Cultura"

Cinedigm has picked up North American distribution rights to Israeli photographer and filmmaker Shaul Schwarz' documentary "Narco Cultura," which premiered last week at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival. The film looks at the influence of drug cartels on pop culture on both sides of the Mexican-American border, through the eyes of an L.A. narcocorrido singer and a Juarez crime scene investigator.

Cinedigm plans an awards-qualifying run for the film in 2013. The doc's next screening will be at the Berlin Film Festival (February 7-17).

"Narco Cultura" is Schwarz' feature film debut. His photography has appeared in National Geographic, the New York Times Magazine, TIME and Newsweek, among other publications.
