OUR DEAR DEAD DRUG LORD - Full Length

The Dead Leaders Club has been formally disbanded by school administration for misappropriating school funds... and worshipping Pablo Escobar.

But are they just messing with each other, or could they actually be messing with a higher spirit? Our Dear Dead Drug Lord explores the tension between violence and eroticism, and questions who the millennial generation will become if we don’t pay attention.  (4 f, 1 m)
