Unfortunaly, I was not able to be in New York last month for the PRÓFUGOS screening at the New York Latino Film Festival, and missed the Red Carpet interviews and post-screening party!! It would have been great to meet some of the actors, whoever may have been present, Benjamín Vicuña, Luis Gnecco, Néstor Cantillana y más. You have to see the show to see!
I have seen episode one and two and now, I am not sure how I am going to be able to follow the story of the four and find out who all the players are. As much as you do not want to get hooked on these stories, it is hard to pass up. The subtitles help along, no matter what level of Spanish the viewer has; it is not hard to follow.

PRÓFUGOS is the story of a failed drug trafficking operation that started on the border between Bolivia and Chile, the four men who met to carry it out and the real actors behind the business. A complex web of ambitions, interests and corruption move the threads of this story, where no one is who they appear to be, everyone hides a past and human wretchedness unites them in the imperious need to flee without knowing who and what they are fleeing from.
“Prófugos” es la historia de una fallida operación de tráfico de droga que se inicia en la frontera entre Bolivia y Chile, los cuatro hombres que se reúnen para llevarla a cabo y los verdaderos actores que están detrás del negocio. Una entramada red de ambiciones, intereses y corrupción mueven los hilos de esta historia, donde nadie es quien parece, todos ocultan un pasado y las miserias humanas se unen ante la necesidad imperiosa de huir, sin saber de quién o quiénes se está escapando.
