Movie Info

COCAINE PRISON begins in Bolivia's notorious San Sebastian prison, a virtual citadel inside a crumbling old colonial house and follows the interlinked lives of Hernan, a drug mule who dreams of being a drug boss, his younger sister, Daisy, who struggles to escape the lure to traffic cocaine and Hernan's friend, Mario, a cocaine worker fighting for freedom. In a country where the cocaine trade isn't ruled by violence, these three small fish dispel the gun toting Narco myth and put into perspective the drug war and the lives of the 'disposable' people.


Critic Reviews for Cocaine Prison

All Critics (6)

Cocaine Prison speaks documentary truth to power as sharply as any work of investigative journalism. That's quite the cinematic rush; who needs actual drugs?

January 24, 2018 | Full Review…

By the end, there is a glimmer of hope that situations like Hernan's will be rectified. But there's no letting up on the failed drug war.

November 17, 2017 | Full Review…

The doc feels loosely edited, unfocused, and a bit boring, with unidentified voiceovers to further confuse things.

[We] relate with Hernan and Mario's struggles beyond the faceless notion of crime to understand the people who suffer most are those manipulated by power, wealth, and fear.

September 13, 2017 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

The footage the two men take resembles a scrappy journal, like diaries scribbled down on toilet paper. Raw, intimate and sad.

September 11, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Pretty incredible when it's just following a harrowing yet surprisingly upbeat character drama.
