Video of the Week: The Violence of Mexican Drug Cartels [Infographic]

I stumbled upon this video on vimeo.com and was torn between the remarkable whimsical visuals and the sobering content. With tens of thousands being murdered in the bloody war against Mexican Drug Cartels being waged across the U.S. border, this video, produced by the creative folks over at visual.ly, sheds some light on the complexities of the war and why it is happening.

Mexico City based photographer David Rochkind's "Heavy Hand, Sunken Spirit: Mexico At War" photography project illustrates the societal costs and consequences of Mexico’s violent drug war. You can view the series HERE.
