In the 1980s and 90s, the Colombian national soccer team enjoyed an unprecedented rise to glory after decades of obscurity. Central to the team’s success were two men named Escobar: Andrés, the captain of the National Team, and Pablo, the infamous drug baron who pioneered the phenomenon known as “narco-soccer.” 100 minutes. English and Spanish with English subtitles.

“The Two Escobars is a riveting examination of the intersection of sports, crime and politics.” — David Ansen, Los Angeles Film Festival
