PMA Proposal #1: Narcos: Mexico

For my persuasive media analysis, I would like to take a look at Narcos: Mexico. Narcos: Mexico is a series on Netflix that tells the story of the DEA intervention of the Sinaloa drug cartel in the 1980s. We follow Kiki Camarena and his role in the following of Miguel Angel Felix Gallardo and his cartel. I chose this because it is a historical fiction. Two of the theme that we discussed during class was realism and narrative. Narcos: Mexico heavily relies on the realism of the show that allows the audience to believe what they see, all the meanwhile creating a narrative throughout each episode. This invites the audience to see through the eyes of the DEA agents and their point of view, which invites analysis for the overall theme and rhetoric. As a Mexican-American and my parents being fully Mexican, I am interested in analyzing this media because of the stories I heard from my parents, stating whether the show was valid or not.
