Lopez turns activist

By Fortunesfool     Feb 15, 2007 in Entertainment
Jennifer Lopez has swapped the 'A' list for social activism.
Bordertown is her new film, it is about the plight of Mexican women working in factories near the U.S. border who are raped and murdered. The films makers allege that both companies and authorities have attempted to cover-up these crimes.
Lopez plays an ambitious reporter from Chicago who travels to Mexico on an assignment she hopes will get her a cherished overseas posting at her newspaper.
At first cynical and self-serving, her character becomes increasingly concerned by the disappearance of hundreds of women whose graves are unearthed with alarming regularity, while the task of uncovering the truth becomes more and more dangerous.
The film had its world premiere at the Berlin film festival.
