Cartel Land (True/False @ the Moxie)

Director: Matthew Heineman Genre(s): Action, Drama, War, Documentary Rating: R

This film is part of our True/False film series @ the Moxie. A $25 “passport” gets you into all five movies in the series. Every year at the True/False Film Festival [(]( we see more great documentaries than we are able to show here at the Moxie...well we finally got tired of that. So we're showcasing five of our favorites from the 2015 festival that otherwise weren't going to get a run. With the gracious assistance of the good folks at T/F, we hope to create a little semblance of the magic they specialize in up there in Columbia, MO. A few of the Monday night screening will have Q&As with directors (via Skype). If you just want to see the movie, check out he Sunday screenings.
