El Chapo Guzmán

Festival Express

By David Johanssen

Joaquín Guzmán Loera was considered the “most powerful drug trafficker in the world” by the United States Department of the Treasury until his arrest in 2014. Guzmán has been ranked by Forbes magazine as one of the most powerful people in the world. He was named as the tenth richest man in Mexico in 2011, with a net worth of roughly US$1billion. The magazine also calls him the “biggest drug lord of all time,” surpassing the infamy of Pablo Escobar. Join us for a documentary and discussion on the story of El Chapo on Tuesday, December 23, at 4pm. Drug Lord: The Legend of Shorty is a documentary that chronicles the hunt for the notorious Mexican drug lord. 40 pesos.
