Escobar: Paradise Lost
Filmfest 2015

For Pablo Escobar, family is everything. When young surfer Nick falls for Escobar's niece, he finds his life on the line when he's pulled into the dangerous world of the family business.

"All empires are created of fire & blood."
Pablo Escobar

"I've always been interested in storytelling. It's in me. Whereas the same cannot be said for directing. I'd never even thought about doing my first film. I just had a story to offer. I can only transcribe what I see in my head. In my view, the director reproduces a sort of dream world of his own creation. I see the most beautiful shots and the best staging in my dreams. I try to bring together the images, the scenes and the emotions in the service of the story, using my experiences as an actor and my cinematographic tastes."
Andrea Di Stefano
