Item Details

While rival drug cartels warred in the streets, the Columbian national soccer team took a rapid rise to glory, with Andres Escobar its inspirational captain. Meanwhile the infamous drug baron, Pablo Escobar, pioneered "Narco-soccer". After a mistake by Andres led to a loss at the 1994 World Cup, less than ten days later he was gunned down outside a bar, a tragedy documented in this thriller about the intersection of crime and sport. "En una época en la que el dinero de la droga alimentaba al deporte conocido como "Narcofútbol", el destino de Andrés Escobar, el inspirador capitán de Atlético Nacional, y el de Pablo Escobar, el archiconocido lider del Cartel de Medellin, estuvieron permanentamente interconectados. Cuando Andrés fue asesinado 10 días después de haber anotado un gol en contra frente a Estados Unidos, en la primera ronda de la Copa del Mundo de 1994, el país perdió más que a un héroe nacional. Con imágenes nunca antes vistas provenientes de los archivos personales de los parientes de Pablo y nuevas entrevistas con los compañeros y familiares de Andrés, The Two Escobars es un thriller "complejo y ambicioso" (New York Times) y, para SI.com, 'el mejor documental sobre fútbol jamás filmado'."--Container.

Opinion

From Library Staff

A thrilling, bittersweet contrast between Andres Escobar, team captain of the 1994 Colombian squad who died ten days after his famous own goal, and Pablo Escobar, the notorious drug kingpin whose presence was always hovering over the team.
