EL PASO - The violence in Juarez is the subject of a documentary premiering tonight in El Paso.
The movie titled "8 Murders a Day" was shot in Fall 2010.
It will play on screens at Basset Place.
The director Charlie Minn spent several months shooting the film in Juarez.
He also used video from scenes shot by NewsChannel 9's reporter in Juarez.
Minn says while the violence in Juarez is covered by local media, the movie takes a closer look.
He says the film contains emotional interviews with people directly affected by the drug war.
The film premieres tonight at the movie theater at Basset Place.
It will run through next Thursday.
If there is a strong showing of support, Minn says the showings could be extended.
