Podcast – What Happens When a Filmmaker Sets Out to Find the World’s Most Notorious Criminal?
After escaping prison in 2001, Joaquin “El Chapo” Guzman became the most wanted criminal in the world. The DEA, FBI, and Mexican authorities were all hunting him, but for some reason they couldn’t find El Chapo over the next decade.
Filmmaker Angus MacQueen doubted that with their virtually limitless resources these government agencies couldn’t find El Chapo, so he set out with a camera to find El Chapo himself and make a movie about the search.
This episode details what he did and how he survived the process. Josh and Angus discuss what it was like to gain unprecedented access into a shadowy world, how Angus became one of the only outsiders to access the Golden Triangle, and if he found El Chapo. The resulting movie is called “Drug Lord: The Legend of Shorty.”
