My Father Pablo Escobar tells the inside story of the life, death and legacy of drug lord Pablo Escobar as seen through the eyes of his only son and the sons of his most prominent victims.
To some Pablo Escobar was a ruthless criminal. To others, he was a noble saint, but to Sebastian Marroquin, he was one thing above all others: a father.My Father Pablo Escobar takes you inside the world of the most notorious drug trafficker of the modern era, from a new perspective: the voice of his only son. For the first time, Sebastian Marroquin (formally Juan Pablo Escobar) invites the world deep into the house of Escobar through photographs, recordings and intimate memories.
Along the way, Sebastian reaches out to the sons of his father's most prominent murder victims, Colombian politicians and anti-drug trade crusaders Luis Carlos Galan and Rodridgo Lara Bonilla. He attempts to close wounds that extend beyond three families, and across the history of the home they all once shared - Colombia. His sincere asking of their forgiveness gives this sharply focused film an even keener edge.
