- Genre: Special Interest-Documentary
- Release Date: 11/9/2010
From award-winning Director Jeff Zimbalist (Favela Rising)1 & Michael Zimbalist comes a "gripping human drama" (Huffington Post) about the intersection of crime, sports and nationalism in 1990's Columbia. At a time when drug money fueled the sport known in the underworld as "narco-soccer", the fates of Andres Escobar, the inspirational captain of Nacional, and Pablo Escober, the notorious leader of the Medellfn cartel, were permanently linked. When Andres was murdered 10 days after scoring an own goal against the US in the first round of the 1994 World Cup, it cost the country more than a shot at the title. Complete with never-before-seen video from the personal archives of Pablo's relatives and new interviews with Andres' teammates and family, the Two Escobars is a "complex and ambitious" (NY Times) thriller.
