BIRDS OF PASSAGE (2018)
[PÁJAROS DE VERANO]
2018 Oscar® Selection, Colombia
Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra, the creative team behind 2015's Oscar®-nominated EMBRACE OF THE SERPENT, return with this inspired mob epic for the ages — a completely fresh take on the origins of the Colombian drug trade, as told through the story of an indigenous Wayúu family. In the 1970s, as an American-fueled marijuana boom hits Colombia, farmers quickly turn into seasoned businessmen and, in the Guajira desert, one Wayúu clan takes a leading role. But as greed, passion and honor blend together over the decades, the family's unity, their lives and their ancestral traditions are all put at stake. Official Selection, 2018 Cannes Directors' Fortnight, Karlovy Vary, New Zealand, Locarno and Toronto film festivals. DIR/PROD Cristina Gallego, Ciro Guerra; SCR Maria Camila Arias, Jacques Toulemonde Vidal; PROD Katrin Pors. Colombia/Denmark, 2018, color, 125 min. In English, Spanish and Wayúu with English subtitles. NOT RATED
