The creator of & # 39; "narco", the Netflix series to tell the story of cocaine in Latin America and already available on the platform, said in & # 39; interview & # 39; Telam that the United States is "the main problem" for subsistence & # 39; drug trafficking and the bosses & # 39; that business' m & # 39; no happy ending ".
This is Eric Newman, the American producer and creative chief of the series after three seasons focused on the Colombian cartels & # 39; Cali and Medellin and figures like Pablo Escobar, have now taken action to another time and elsewhere.
Does & # 39; Diego Luna as Capo of the Guadalajara cartel Miguel Ángel Félix Gallardo, "narco: México" travels in the late seventies and early 80s, before that country became the epicenter global drug trafficking.
– Télam: What distinguishes it from Columbian seasons of the series?
– Eric Newman: The Mexican experience in the "War on Drugs" is very different from that of Colombia. The Colombian was b & # 39; some as a victory, because deactivate the big cartels and violence reached its peak in the early 90s Mexico not only rbaħx the war, but everything has become worse and worse.
– T: And to find the germ of & # 39; that "narco" news had to travel to the past.
– E.N. When I saw the research realized series for both aspects of the narcotics history in Mexico began in the late 70s by traffickers in growth & # 39; Gilbajara. Felix Gallardo was brilliant, it was a little nazzjonalizza industry previously separate fiefdiet drugs. It was the first real super cartel.
– Why the public is passionate about this type of & # 39; history?
– E.N. I think this part should get & # 39; shared with the fact that this is a true story, that these things happened really give educational value. But also with & # 39; we work our characters; Our goal is that it is easy to combine them, they agree.
– How iddefinijt tone to present to these Villani?
– E.N.: I always thought the bad guys, even the worst ones, are ultimately in humans. F & # 39; film & # 39; hours do not have time to redeem made something horrible character, but in & # 39; hours of & # 39; TV can & # 39; to see how bad a man can & # 39; possible and at the same time operate it. F & # 39; one of the episodes can & # 39; view and kills several people in & # 39; other connect with loved seeing how his children.
– T: S & # 39; think about the critics who say that this humanization "encouraging" traffickers?
– E.N.: M & # 39; there is no glory at the end of & # 39; Pablo Escobar, the blowing of candles & # 39; closing in & # 39; & # 39 place where, hide, away from his family. These people are rich, but not live to enjoy their money; M & # 39; there is no happy ending in the drug trafficking business. I think there is a danger not human being manufactured, because what you say is that the monster is born and not true. If we think we can miss a chance to prevent them before they take the form of & # 39; monsters.
T: Why this "war" against drugs is a & # 39; success?
-E.N .: The Americans have the largest market in the world for drug trafficking, we are the main reason for the problem because we penalize addicts. The US likes the idea that the problem is these dark people & # 39; Dark to send medicines do not want, the reality is that we want that drug and more than anything else.
