Movie Delves into the War on Drugs

On Tuesday, November 19 at 4:30 pm, the Movies That Matter series presents Cocaine Unwrapped, a documentary by Rachel Seifert that tells a story of politics, death, economic and environmental devastation and human suffering, as well as explores realistic alternatives to the war on drugs.

This story of cocaine includes coca farmers in Colombia, drug 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. The film features front line reportage, exclusive access to the political leaders of Latin America, such as Evo Morales of Bolivia and Rafael Correa of Ecuador, as well as revealing interviews with drug czars. Watch this film and you will never think the same way again about the "War on Drugs".

As Virginia Bouvier of the United States Institute for Peace explains, "Cocaine Unwrapped shows how drug wars have not only failed to reduce the production, trafficking, and consumption of drugs, but have left in their wake collateral damage as devastating as the problems they purported to resolve...This film should provoke casual cocaine users and policy makers alike to think twice about the consequences of their actions. Cocaine Unwrapped is a clarion call for revamping current drug policies."

The film is part of a monthly Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Door County series that exams a wide range of issues through film. The UU Fellowship is located at 10341 Hwy. 42 in north Ephraim. For further information call (920) 854-7559.
