Storyville: Pablo Escobars Hippo’s

Vodpod videos no longer available.

As my interesting watch for this week, I’m recommending the BBC Storyvilles documentary on drug dealer and self promoted man of the people Pablo Escobar.

Recounting the absurd and paradoxical history of Colombia’s thirty-year struggle with international drug trafficking, at once a farce and a tragedy, as seen through the eyes of the extravagant pet of the most powerful drug baron in history: a hippopotamus named Pablo.
