The Monster in the Mountains by Matt Black

We have been working with Matt Black on his story that explores the social landscape in Guerrero, Mexico, in the aftermath of the kidnapping of 43 students on September 26, 2014. In reporting on the political and social fabric of Guerrero, the country’s second poorest and most violent state, Matt continues his long term project “The people of Clouds” which looks at the reasons behind migration from southern Mexico to the United States.

Matt Black did this latest story in cooperation with The Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting and The New Yorker.

The New Yorker also produced a video on this story based on Matt’s interviews with the people of Guerrero.…/video-the-monster-in-the-mountai…
