QUIET PICTURES is a New York-based production company, founded by award-winning documentary filmmaker Bernardo Ruiz in 2007. Ruiz's directorial feature debut, “Reportero” (POV, 2013) about attacks on the press in Mexico, was nominated for a 2014 News and Documentary Emmy® Award and premiered at Full Frame (U.S.), IDFA (Europe) and Ambulante (Mexico). New York Magazine called it “a powerful reminder of how journalism often requires immense amounts of physical and psychological bravery.” His latest feature documentary, “Kingdom of Shadows” (produced for Participant Media) braids together the stories of a Mexican nun, a U.S. Federal agent and a former drug smuggler, all living under the shadow of the drug war. “Many documentaries have chronicled the drug war in the U.S. and Mexico,” writes Slackerwood, “but few have humanized it as poignantly as Kingdom of Shadows.” The film premiered at SXSW (2015) and is set to tour in Mexico through Ambulante in the fall of 2015.
