In the 1980s, a new breed of drug dealers hit the shores of Miami, bringing with them prolific violence and cocaine that transformed the once sleepy city into the nerve center of a $20 billion a year drug empire controlled by Colombia’s Medellin cartel.
In the first movie Cocaine Cowboys, we heard the escapades of ruthless Colombian cocaine importers who turned Miami into the drug and murder capital of America. But parts of the story were left untold, until now.
Cocaine Cowboys Reloaded is an extended edition of the first documentary revealing hours of additional unseen interviews, archival video footage and stories of key players Griselda Blanco and the Medellín Cartel. You will hear first-hand from the individuals who killed and smuggled for the cartel including hitman Jorge ‘Rivi’ Ayala, trafficker Jon Roberts, Mickey Munday, plus more.
The documentary recaptures Miami’s Cocaine Wars and the extraordinary impact it had on the city once labeled “Paradise Lost” by TIME magazine.
