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

Don’t forget your roots at any cost.
Very interesting but very long.
Drugs, what an ugly trade.
Looked good, culture interesting, acting wooden.
Wonderfully shot but pointless.
Plenty of action but only a simple message.
