Rachel Siefert, Director
This film tells the story of cocaine: coca farmers in Colombia, drugs mules in Ecuadorian prisons, cocaine factories in the Bolivian jungle, dealers on the streets of Mexico, law enforcement officials on the streets of Baltimore – and the everyday consumers around the dinner tables of the West. It’s a story of politics, death, economic devastation and human suffering, and explores realistic alternative to the war on drugs. Front line reportage, exclusive access to the political leaders of Latin America, revealing interviews with drug czars – watch this and you will never thing the same about cocaine and the war on drugs again.
Rachel Siefert is an award-winning producer, and ‘Cocaine Unwrapped’ is her directorial debut. Among her screen credits is the feature documentary ‘Who Am I? The Found Children of Argentina’, a story of the children of the disappeared during Argentina’s ‘Dirty War’, and the Channel 4 documentary film ‘The Kids Britain Doesn’t Want’, a film about the treatment of children in the asylum system in the UK.
