How American international policy lead to a global epidemic

Instead of war on poverty, they got a war on drugs so the police can bother me.” Remember these lyrics timelessly spoken by one Tupac Shakur? Breaking the Taboo is a documentary-esque film shedding light on the infamous Reagan-initiated War on Drugs, attempting to underscore the policy’s flaws since it was launched back in day. Lending his legendary voice, Oscar-winning actor Morgan Freeman narrates the Cosmo Feilding Mellen and Fernando Gorstein Andrade-directed film. In its one-hour life, the film tracks the Global Commission on Drug Policy through its  battle to shed light upon the taboo of the ill-fated War on Drugs, and the United States role in the debacle. Featuring interviews with current and former world presidents including Bill Clinton, Breaking the Taboo hopes to enlighten the audience as to what, it says, “is the biggest failure of global policy in the last 40 years.” Follow Sundog Pictures and Spray Filmes production through a journey that a lines itself with forward thinkers like Tupac.
