The Deal

A documentary directed by .

Synopsis

Based on a true story: a British tele­vi­sion crew trav­elled to Colom­bia and made a fake doc­u­men­tary about drug traf­fick­ing. The film was an inter­na­tional smash hit (as was The Con­nec­tion). When a Lon­don daily dis­cov­ers that the whole thing is a hoax, a cou­ple of British jour­nal­ists are sent out to Colom­bia to cover the story. Their report unleashes a scan­dal that shakes the very foun­da­tions of tele­vi­sion in the UK. A poignant por­trait of Colom­bian society.
