Extreme Security


Review:

Latin America must fight complex situations of violence and insecurity. Crime’s boom has originated protection mechanisms more advanced and this documentary reveals why in countries such as Colombia, Venezuela, Mexico and Brazil, protecting other is an increasingly important business. This documentary reveals how some of the most popular and sophisticated strategies work for protection against crime and terrorism. From how a bodyguard is trained and how an automobile is armoured, to how the necessary technology to make armoured clothes is developed, the manufacturing of an ID chip which is implanted on the body and the installation of a camera inside a dirigible to watch from the sky.
