Little Rock filmmakers The Renaud Brothers — Brent and Craig — cut their teeth making insightful, powerful documentary in some of the world’s most dangerous places, including Iraq and earthquake-ravaged Haiti. But doesn’t get much more dangerous than where they’ve been the last few years: the towns along the Mexican-U.S. border, which have been turned into war zones by the drug cartels.


On Monday, Oct. 31 at 8 p.m. on Current TV, the Renaud Bros. and Current’s Vanguard doc series take you inside one of the most interesting facets of that deadly struggle: the river of illegal firearms — including military-grade assault rifles — flowing from U.S. gun shops and gun shows into the hands of the cartels. The trailer above looks excellent. Check it out.
