A Must-See Film!
11 May 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Feathered Cocaine is a riveting and bold documentary film about the world of falcon smuggling. This illegal, lucrative trade has had a serious impact on the sustainability of falcons and if kept intact, could destroy the whole population.

Allan Parrot's remarkable tale reveals governmental corruption and the networking of royal Arab families and terrorist groups. His unyielding spirit and passion for his falcons is his sole weapon to defend these majestic birds of prey.

Feathered Cocaine by Thorkell Hardarson and Orn Marino Arnarson is an amazing, very well crafted film, probably one of the bravest documentaries out there! An absolute must-see film!
