A journalist who documented the ugly world of El Salvador’s infamous gang life was killed early Wednesday morning. Christian Poveda, a veteran Franco-Spanish documentary filmmaker and photojournalist, was shot in the head and killed on the road near the country’s capital, San Salvador. No suspects have been arrested, and it is unknown why he was killed.
Poveda was just weeks away from the official premiere of his documentary about the violent, ugly world of Salvadoran gang life when he was killed. The documentary, La Vida Loca, is set to premiere on Sept. 30 in Paris. It has already been broadcast in Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Germany, and Hungary. It has never been shown in El Salvador.
