Jason Reitman hosts the premiere of THE TWO ESCOBARS

A miracle in editing, The Two Escobars recounts the story of infamous drug king, Pablo Escobar, and beloved soccer star, Andrés Escobar, whose worlds intersected in Colombia in the 1980s and 90s. Brothers Jeff and Michael Zimbalist co-directed the investigative tale that pieces together footage from soccer games, news reports, and recent interviews with outlaws and athletes. The ESPN production first screened at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. A solid case study in documentary journalism, the film is fascinating to watch, but you soon realize, this story is not going to end well.
