Birds of Passage
Director Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra
Starring Carmiña Martínez, José Acosta, Natalia Reyes
From the team behind Embrace of the Serpent , comes an equally audacious saga centred on the Wayúu indigenous people, tracing the origins of the Colombian drug trade. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, Birds of Passage is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change.
“Really terrific, with the trappings of genre cinema without sacrificing any of the authenticity of the filmmakers.” – Kermode & Mayo
