CUFF DOCS PREVIEW: NARCO CULTURA

102 min./USA/2013/English, Spanish

Directed by Shaul Schwarz

Screens: November 22, 9:15 p.m.

To a growing number of Mexicans and Latinos in the Americas, narco-traffickers have become iconic outlaws, glorified by musicians who praise their new models of fame and success. They represent a pathway out of the ghetto, nurturing a new American dream fuelled by an addiction to money, drugs and violence. From war photographer Shaul Schwarz comes Narco Cultura, an explosive look at the drug cartels’ pop culture influence on both sides of the border as experienced by an LA narco corridor singer dreaming of stardom and a Juarez crime scene investigator on the front line of Mexico’s drug war. Narco Cultura offers an unprecedented and heart-wrenching look into the blood-soaked world of the Mexican drug war, from the murderous traffickers and the musicians who revere them to the families left in the wake.
