Birds of Passage

From Oscar-nominated filmmakers Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra (Embrace Of The Serpent) comes a beguiling dynastic drama set among the indigenous Wayúu people of Colombia.

Young Rapayet (José Acosta) begins a drug trafficking arrangement with visiting Americans, quickly finding success despite the disapproval of tribal matriarch Ursula (Carmiña Martínez). As Rapayet and his family are drawn further into dangerous situations to meet demand, partners become enemies as the spoils of the drug trade grow beyond everyone’s wildest dreams.

Winner of multiple international awards and bewitching critics with its window into an idiosyncratic society governed by traditions but undone by greed, BIRDS OF PASSAGE is one of the year’s most intriguing features.
