The Sorrows of Mexico – with Emiliano Ruiz Parra, Sergio González Rodríguez and Diego Enrique Osorno

Wednesday 31st August 19:00 at London - Piccadilly


Veering between carnival and apocalypse, Mexico has in the last ten years become the epicentre of the international drug trade. The drug cartels and the forces of law and order are often in collusion, corruption is everywhere. Life is cheap and inconvenient people - the poor, the unlucky, the honest or the inquisitive - can be "disappeared".

Yet people in all walks of life have refused to give up.

The Sorrows of Mexico is a book of essays looking at Mexican society from all sorts of perspectives: reportage at its bravest and most necessary.

This evening we are joined by Emiliano Ruiz Parra, Sergio González Rodríguez and Diego Enrique Osorno to discuss the broad situation and how to not only change the world's view of Mexico, but start to heal the country's many sorrows.
