While his birth certificate may read “Joaquín Archivaldo Guzmán Loera,” to those in law enforcement and the drug game, he’s better known as “Shorty Guzman,” and make no mistake, he is one of the most dangerous criminals in the world. The forthcoming documentary “Drug Lord: The Legend Of Shorty” tells the saga of the drug kingpin, and today we have the exclusive trailer and poster for the film.
Directed by Angus Macqueen and Guillermo Galdos, ‘Drug Lord’ chronicles his decades-long career on the run from the authorities while building up a profile as either a saintly Robin Hood kind of figure or a dangerous, powerful criminal mastermind. And all of this is set against the backdrop of the cartel wars that have seen 80,000 Mexicans killed.
“Drug Lord: The Legend Of Shorty” opens in limited release and in theaters on November 14th. It will air on “Frontline” on PBS in 2015.
