Subtitled With: Carmiña Martínez, José Acosta
From the filmmakers behind the Oscar-nominated EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT comes their latest epic, BIRDS OF PASSAGE, a tale about indigenous traditions and the corrupting forces of wealth and power, set against the backdrop of the Colombian marijuana boom of the 1970s.
A film of both gangsters and spirits, corruption and fratricidal war, this is a thrilling depiction of the origins of the drug trade told through the story of an indigenous Wayuu family’s downfall when greed, passion and honour collide, putting their lives, culture and ancestral traditions at stake.
