Amnesty International will present Jennifer Lopez with its “Artists for Amnesty” award at the world preem of her film “Bordertown” at Berlin Film Festival February 15.
In “Bordertown,” Lopez plays an investigative journalist reporting on the murders. Antonio Banderas and Martin Sheen co-star. Pic is directed by Gregory Nava.
“In 1998 when Gregory Nava came to me with this project I desperately wanted to tell this story,” said Lopez. “I began working to ensure we made this film in order to bring the attention of the world to this tragedy and to pressure the Mexican government to bring to justice those responsible for these horrible crimes.”
