Jennifer Lopez Receives Amnesty Award

Jennifer Lopez is set to receive the Artists for Amnesty award at the Berlin Film Festival for producing and starring in Bordertown, a film examining the murders of hundreds of women in a Mexican town.

Lopez says, “Since first hearing of these atrocities in 1998…I desperately wanted to tell this story (as depicted in Bordertown). “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.”

Jennifer Lopez is scheduled to receive the award on 14 February from Nobel Peace Prize winner Jose Ramos-Horta.source
