Sins of My Father
Director: Nicolas Entel
- 2010 Sundance Film Festival
Pablo Escobar, the most notorious and brutal drug lord in Colombia's history, was gunned down in Medellín in 1993. After his father's death, Juan Escobar fled to Buenos Aires, changed his name to Sebastián Marroquín, assuming a new identity to escape his father's dubious legacy. For the first time since Escobar's death, Marroquín comes forward to tell his father's story. With heartfelt honesty, he recounts what it was like to grow up loving a father that he knew was his country's number-one enemy. Unsatisfied with simply relating history, Marroquín requests a meeting with the sons of two celebrated Colombian political leaders who were among hundreds of victims that his father had killed in the 1980s.
Filmmaker Nicolas Entel captures the powerful and historic moment when the son of Pablo Escobar and the sons of his victims come together to heal wounds that have haunted them all for decades.
