Official Selection Festival de Cine de Morelia Festival Viva Mexico Cinema en París - Festival Internacional Mira Film Fest -- Audience Award - Docs MX -- Audience Award NARCO : THE UNTOLD STORY is an award-winning documentary that explains the history and development of drug trafficking between Mexico and the US from the point of view Juan. Juan is the son of one of the initiators of the drug trade and was a mentor for two of the most famous drug lords in the world. Jose break his silence to tell his story in an attempt to redeem himself and to deter younger generations from following down the same path. The film cleverly integrates stories from people who have researched this period (including, prominent journalist Pedro Ferris de Con, opinions from a university professor and a historian) and from the people who were involved and affected by these events (including farmers, social workers and the cinematographer who used to be Juan’s childhood friend.). This film is more than just a story, it’s a history lesson.
