A New film looking at the global war on drugs, and specifically the story of cocaine, will host its public UK premiere tonight - Wednesday, May 16 - at the Prince Charles Cinema, Leicester Square, London.

Cocaine Unwrapped is "the untold story of the human suffering and cost caused by the cocaine trade and the war against it." The trailer is included below.

The hard-hitting documentary is directed by Rachel Seifert (Who Am I? The Found Children of Argentina) and executive produced by Christopher Hird (The End of the Line, The War You Don't See, Black Gold).

Cocaine Unwrapped promises to bring unprecedented access to the political leaders of Latin America.

As Western demand for cocaine reaches record levels, so does the violence at every stage of the global trade in the drug.

The film explores the international network of violence, imprisonment, poverty and addiction caused in its wake.
