El Hijo de Mal In His Own Words

Dad was evil. Let's learn, forgive (not forget) and move on.That's the message of Pecados de me Padre, a new film featuring Sebastián Marroquín, son of Colombian drug lord Pablo Escobar, as he seeks forgiveness for the sins of [his] father. It's a very unusual thought from a son who grew up in very unusual circumstances, but it gets boiled down to: "I have learned many things from my father. The most important one is that if I want to live I have to do everything oppossite to him. That was my lesson. ... Wherever he is, I know he has to regret what he did."
