Cocaine Unwrapped

A hard-hitting documentary linking London’s cocaine trade to global murder and injustice premiered in the West End last week.

Cocaine Unwrapped is a hard-hitting documentary featuring interviews with Bolivian coca farmers, Ecuadorian drug mules and consumers from the West.

According to director Rachel Seifert, in London, a gram of cocaine costs £50 from which a Colombian farmer earns about 50p and a dealer in Mexico £5.

The film reveals how as cocaine use in London increases, so does the international network of violence, imprisonment, poverty and addiction linked to the drug trade.

Seifert said: ‘I hope that this film can engage the public in a debate and help to make a difference.

‘The UK is one of the largest consumers of cocaine, and as a country has a hugely influential part to play in being able to affect change by reviewing our drugs policy.’
