Narrated by Oscar winning actor Morgan Freeman, “Breaking the Taboo” is produced by Sam Branson’s indie Sundog Pictures and Brazilian co-production partner Spray Filmes and was directed by Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Grostein Andrade. Featuring interviews with several current or former presidents from around the world, such as Bill Clinton and Jimmy Carter, the film follows The Global Commission on Drug Policy on a mission to break the political taboo over the United States led War on Drugs and expose what it calls the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.
Tarantino’s new movie, Django Unchained, is about a slave in the mid-19th century American south who takes control of his life, but Tarantino isn’t stuck in the past. He makes a clear connection between his film and the mass incarceration of black males taking place in the US today as a result of the disastrous war on drugs.
If you agree with Tarantino that the war on drugs is seriously flawed, share this widely and take action.
