The Hits Just Keep on Coming
To a growing number of Mexicans and Latinos in the Americas, narco-traffickers have become iconic outlaws and the new models of fame and success. They represent a pathway out of the ghetto, nurturing a new American dream fueled by the war on drugs. Narco Cultura looks at this explosive phenomenon from within, exposing cycles of addiction to money, drugs, and violence that are rapidly gaining strength on both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border

All 1 Comment

A heartbreaking documentary about the Mexican Drug War, as seen from the eyes of two opposite subjects: Edgar Quintero, a "narco-corrido" singer whose life is slowly spiraling down into the very lifestyle his songs are about, and Richi Soto, a crime scene investigator, who risks his life every day in a battle that seems already lost. Schwarz, with his camera engages the viewer as a silent visitor in Dante's hell, descending and leaving all hope behind.
