Artist Dies for his Art

WARNING: This video is very disturbing and contains scenes of violence, death, and sexuality.

The above movie trailer is for the documentary La Vida Loca made by Christian Poveda. It was made by a french documentary artist who was killed on September 4th, 2009, while working on his gang related documentary project in Tonacatepeque, a rural region north of the capital of El Salvador. He was shot in the head.

I hope you will pause a moment in your busy life to pay respect for this brave artist who gave his life to shed light on the human disaster of poverty and gang related violence.
