Interview (Video): Film Director Fernando León de Aranoa

There has been a string of movies over the last few years depicting the life of drug lord Pablo Escobar. Filmmaker Fernando Leon de Aranoa adds the new chapter and perspective on the Pablo Escobar story with his latest film Loving Pablo. I had a chance to speak to Fernando about the film and his experience working on it. Check out the video of the interview below:


I found Fernando to be an interesting guy with a clear vision of what he was trying to accomplish. He spoke about the film in detail of his experiences. He was clear with how he approached the story and how he used the violent scenes in the context of the story.

I felt the film was one of the better Pablo Escobar films, as it was told from another persons perspective (Virginia Vallejo). Dynamic performance from Javier Bardem, playing Escobar. It’s definitely worthy watch.

LOVING PABLO is out in Theaters, On Demand and Digital
