Banged Up Abroad

One of National Geographic's longest running docu-drama series, brings to the screen real-life personal stories of imprisonment abroad. Carlos Quijas was an innocent Texan, arrested and tortured by the Mexican military as part of their infamous war on drugs, and held for nearly three years in one of Mexico's most dangerous prisons, Juarez Cereso. Director Johnny Burke worked closely with DOP Luke Menges to bring Carlos's story alive.
