Mago Torres and Marcela Turati are part of Quinto Elemento, which helped produce “The Country with 2,000 Graves,” a chilling look at the grave sites that criss-cross Mexico as a result of the country's drug war. Reuters' Clare Baldwin and Andrew Marshall shared a Pulitzer Prize this year for what the Pulitzer Committee called "relentless reporting that exposed the brutal killing campaign behind Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte’s war on drugs."
