(TEGUCIGALPA, Honduras) - The documentary film “Cocaine Unwrapped” will premiere at the Open City London Documentary Festival on 17 June at 8:50 p.m.

The film will screen again on 18 June at 2:10 p.m.

A short description of the film from the Dartmouth Films website:

This feature documentary is a wake-up call to the West about the human suffering and cost caused by the cocaine trade and the war against it.

The film is a skilful combination of reportage from the drugs frontline and interviews with those top-level international politicians who are campaigning to get us in the West to take real responsibility for our drugs problem.

Unwrapping the human cost of cocaine, the film shows the true price of this commodity.

"The global war on drugs has failed, with devastating consequences for individuals and societies around the world. Fifty years after the initiation of the UN Single Convention on Narcotic Drugs (See, and 40 years after President Nixon launched the US government’s war on drugs (See REPORT OF THE GLOBAL COMMISSION ON DRUG POLICY (June 2011) (, fundamental reforms in national and global drug control policies are urgently needed."

When will we wake up from the nightmare that is called "drug prohibition"?
