El Espectador: The Press and the Drug Lords

  • 1990 ----- color ----- 58 min ----- vhs
  • Presents the story of the Bogota, Columbia, newspaper whose offices have been bombed and members of whose staff have been killed in the pursuit of their work--which included reporting on the details of the Columbian drug trade. Shows how the politics of cocaine can dominate an entire country, leaving ordinary people who have no aspiration to heroics with fear as their constant companion.
