MOVIE NIGHT

LA VIDA LOCA
Documentary by Christian Poveda

Visceral and gripping, LA VIDA LOCA chronicles the stark reality of the life of Mara 18 gang members in San Salvador's bleakest barrio of La Campanera.

Captured in extreme detail, French journalist Christian Poveda follows the story of the Mara 18 as the mareros struggle with life on the streets, the police and themselves.

Poveda's LA VIDA LOCA goes beyond voyeurism by boldly depicting the violence they face and delivering a scathing portrayal of the social negligence that produced them.
