HBO GO OFFERS FREE ACCESS TO ITS ORIGINAL DOCUMENTARY “WARS OF OTHERS”

Thanks to the resounding success during its premiere on HBO, the original documentary Wars of Others can now be enjoyed for a limited time at no cost on HBO GO. This gratuitous access will be available to the public until August 21, 2016.

Wars of Others examines the practice of aerial spraying with glyphosate, an herbicide declared to be potentially carcinogenic by the World Health Organization in 2015.

Wars of Others examines the practice of aerial spraying with glyphosate, an herbicide declared to be potentially carcinogenic by the World Health Organization in 2015.

The aerial fumigation has been a key tool in the collaboration between Colombia and the United States in the overall “War on Drugs“, and specifically against the cultivation of the coca leaf. Thus, for many years Colombia had been the only country in the world to disperse this herbicide from airplanes, making way for bitter debates between those that defended it as a harmless product and those that argued that it was severely affecting the health of Colombians.

“We are offering this open access of Wars of Others on HBO GO as part of our ongoing efforts to make our stories available to more people,” commented Luis F. Peraza, President of Networks, HBO Latin America. He added, “This documentary is a true reflection of how the voices of those in our region showcase their talent through HBO, bringing to light relevant narratives of the realities in our countries.”
