Drug Lord: The Legend of Shorty

Season 2015 Episode 13 | 1hr 23m 10s

A feature documentary about two filmmakers who set out to interview "El Chapo" Guzman, leader of one of the biggest drug cartels in history. Before his capture in 2014, "El Chapo" had been on the run from the U.S. and Mexican governments for over a decade -- and after his July 2015 escape from prison, he's now on the lam once again.
