Two friends in windy, arid northern Colombian in the 1960s launch a brisk trade selling marijuana. Business booms, ushering in tension and violence between their respective clans, who share the same customs and traditions. A sprawling, ambitious epic that offers a window onto the culture of the indigenous Wayuu, Birds of Passage stands out for its superb visuals. Ciro Guerra follows up on his sublime Embrace of the Serpent (2015) by teaming up with co-director Cristina Gallego (his wife and producer) to deliver this extraordinary saga that’s part mob tale, part myth.The film will be introduced by the screenwriter Maria Camila Arias.
