On 30th August, Chuck Bowden, my good friend and collaborator on 'Dead when I got here' died. Chuck has been writing about Juárez for the past twenty years, disseminating clarity and compassion
on a brutal world made more opaque by official excuses and ignorance.
His book, 'Murder City' inspired the film and it's with deep sadness that I couldn't complete the work before he passed. I'm privileged to have known the man.
Chuck said of the film, '...it is about finally feeling the full dimensions of what it means to be human and what it costs to face that meaning.'
Chuck explored these dimensions more than most.
