PCC, Secret Power (PCC, Poder Secreto)

Since its founding in São Paulo, Brazil, the Primeiro Comando da Capital, better known as the PCC, has become the country’s largest criminal organization. After a massacre at Carandiru Penitentiary left more than 100 prisoners dead, four inmates at Taubaté Penitentiary formed the organization in 1993 with the intention of fighting oppression within the prison system. But the faction soon became a source of violence and drug trafficking with an impenetrable cross-border presence in Latin America. Featuring interviews with former PCC members, prosecutors, and citizens, the four-part docuseries reveals the secrets behind the cartel’s power and its lingering presence today.
