The Subway Gangs of Mexico City [VICE Documentary]

VICE produces a lot of interesting documentaries, often focusing on social or political issues or movements.

This short documentary, “The Subway Gangs of Mexico City”, focuses on the culture of groups of young Mexico City residents who use their ‘home’ metro station -where they meet up – as a base for their collective identity.

The film explores issues surrounding music, drugs, friendship and conflict with other subway gangs and police.

It provides an interesting insight into the mindset and behaviour of some residents of this mammoth city.

If you have some spare time it’s worth watching.  Stay tuned for the next instalment of my visits to Line 12.
