Manos Sucias

Manos Sucias follows the journey of brothers as they leave the port of Buenaventura, the most dangerous city in Colombia, to navigate up the Pacific coast on a desperate mission. A set of mysterious coordinates is their guide, a fishing net is their cover, and a narco-torpedo filled with 100kg of cocaine is their cargo. A story of brothers risking everything for a chance at a better life, Manos Sucias takes a close look at life at the bottom of the food chain in the international drug trade. Shot on location in Colombia with local actors and a largely local crew, the filmmakers created an unprecedented level of authenticity by collaborating closely with the Buenaventura community to tell the dramatic narrative.
