The Miami-based production company Rakontur celebrates its 10th anniversary this year, having created numerous doc hits ranging from THE U (ESPN’s highest-rated documentary) to BROKE (premiering at this year’s Tribeca Film Festival). STF celebrates Rakontur by screening their breakout sensation COCAINE COWBOYS. The film became an instant doc classic for its chronicles of the Miami drug trade in the 1970s and 1980s and its revealing interviews with both criminals and law enforcement. Director Billy Corben skillfully turns this tabloid subject matter into a probing look at the politics and economy of south Florida. The film became an instant cult classic and has spawned an HBO series currently in development by by producers Michael Bay and Jerry Bruckheimer.
