In the eye of the storm – Sergio Haro reporting no matter what


Nevertheless, Ruiz documents Zeta's incredible three-decade odyssey with solid research, piecing together grainy and at times ghastly video and newspaper coverage with riveting interviews of its key players, including both old tapes of Blanconelas and the notorious Hank Rhon, as well as with Haro and others who carry the Zeta torch forward.

The vital publication has lurched through so many wrenching tragedies and explosive scandals that lacing together the chronology and principal actors must have been daunting, especially given both the paucity of media coverage during the time period and the grim reality that some crucial characters in the story are dead. On this count Ruiz excels, and the final product is a film both engaging and worthwhile.

Reportero aired 9pm Mon, Jan 7 on KLRN as part of the PBS documentary series POV (Point of View). It will screen at CineFestival tonight, February 26. $8, 8:30pm, Guadalupe Theater, 1301 Guadalupe, guadalupeculturalarts.org.
