Based on true events, The Snitch Cartel is the wildly kinetic story of Martin, a poor Colombian boy driven to rise within the ranks of a ruthless drug cartel and to win over the sophisticated Sophia, his first love. Against the violent backdrop of Colombia’s drug wars of the 1990s, Martin fights his way into a powerful position within the “Cartel Norte del Valle.” He gets his girl, but when the cartel’s kingpin is murdered there’s a power shake-up and he fears for his survival. He rolls the dice again, accepting an offer from an American DEA agent to serve a short prison term and become an informant, setting in motion a relentless escalation to an explosive finale.

Acclaimed director Carlos Moreno (Dog Eat Dog, All Your Dead Ones) helms this lavish production, shot in five different cities, blending raw and bloody, masterfully choreographed and edited action sequences with a frank and passionate love story. Colombian heartthrob Manolo Cardona plays Martin with power, vulnerability and sex appeal, heading up a cast that features some of the biggest names in Latin American cinema.

Executive producer Francisco Cardona expected to attend January 6 and January 7 screenings
