Jeannine Diego Medina and Conrado Tostado (Mexico City)
What began for Jeannine Diego Medina and Conrado Tostado as research into the security systems in their quiet neighbourhood of Gardens, soon led to a series of encounters with youth groups, police, gangsters and gang mediators in the township of Guguletu.
A short video was edited later back in Mexico City.
