NARCO - TEC
Mazdoc & Zodiak Latino
Spanish & English
Away from the shootouts and briefcases full of money, this film reveals the state-of-the-art technologies on both sides of the war on drugs.
From remote seaports in the Caribbean to coca fields in South America and desert border crossings in Mexico, war reporter Harris Whitbeck explores the cutting-edge science underpinning the international trade in illegal drugs. We see how powerful criminal overlords embrace new technologies and constantly apply innovation to stay one step ahead of the law: from chemical engineering and cyber crime to undetectable torpedoes and cocaine-filled surfboards. We also see the most sophisticated weapons in the law enforcement agencies’ anti-drug armoury: from radar tracking systems and high tech laboratories to advanced crop eradication programmes. Through interviews with cops and criminals, Narco-Tec gives a complete picture of this sinister world.
