Mexico, United States | 2013 | Shaul Schwarz
Narcocorridos are ballads that celebrate the exploits of Mexico’s narco traffickers and drug lords. This music that openly glorifies violence, drugs, and money is shockingly popular among many Mexicans and Latinos. Narco Cultura, which features performances by narcocorrido artists and footage from the front lines of the drug wars, lifts the curtain on this explosive and disturbing music subculture. “As overwhelming as it is absorbing.” –Variety.
