Films about border culture, immigration and drug violence will be featured during the 10th annual Border Film Week at the University of San Diego.

Kicking off the event Tuesday is the short film “Run Up,” which tells the story of the lynching of a Latino man in Northern California in 1920.

Other films being screened are: “No Más Bebés” and the 2015 Oscar-nominated “Cartel Land.”

Ev Meade, director of the Trans-Border Institute, and Ken Gonzales-Day, director of the film “Run Up,” preview the 10th annual Border Film Week Tuesday on Midday Edition.
