Breaking The Taboo

Format: 1 x 52 / 1 x 74
Available in HD

The UN sanctioned war on drugs has been raging for more than 40 years. Over a trillion dollars has been spent, millions of people imprisoned, and countless thousands killed. And for what? The illegal drug market is worth over $320 billion per year, drugs are cheaper and more prevalent than ever before, and in a growing number of countries drug cartels are the major threat to national security. Yet our governments carry on regardless.

Narrated by Morgan Freeman, John Hurt and Gael Garcia Bernal, this trailblazing new documentary uncovers the UN sanctioned war on drugs, charting its origins and its devastating impact worldwide on countries such as the USA, Colombia, Russia, Mexico and Brazil.

With exclusive access to the big players of The Global Commission on Drug Policy, the film features prominent statesmen including former Presidents Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter, César Gaviria of Colombia and Fernando Henrique Cardoso of Brazil, who press for the urgent need to break the political taboo and expose the biggest failure of global policy in the last 50 years.
