Mr. Untouchable: Godfather or Snitch
Biography, Sociopolitical Documentary with no narration published by HDNet Films in 2007 – English language
The true-life story of a Harlem’s notorious Nicky Barnes, a junkie turned multimillionaire drug-lord, MR. UNTOUCHABLE takes its audience deep inside the heroin industry of the 1970s.
The most powerful black drug kingpin in New York City history, Barnes came from humble beginnings to make himself and his comrades rich beyond their wildest dreams. Trusted and trained by the Italians he set up his own black crime family The Council a formidable drug collective. Ultimately he reached national infamy in 1977 when the New York Times put him on the front cover of their magazine with the headline \”Mr. Untouchable\”. Soon after, it all came crumbling down, and facing a life sentence without parole, Barnes started naming names.
MR. UNTOUCHABLE takes you deep inside the heroin game. With the first hand testimony of the black Godfather himself, this documentary tells an epic story of business, excess, greed and revenge.
The film has secured the testimony of Nicky Barnes himself. Barnes has broken the street code and his 23-year silence to tell all in this epic American dream story. We have also interviewed former members of The Council and others in the Barnes drug Collective. This is an inside look at the heroin business from the Kingpin at the top to the dealer and user on the street.
