BIRD OF PASSAGE (MA15+)

From the Oscar-nominated filmmaking team behind the gorgeous Embrace of the Serpent, comes a tale exploring the origins of the Colombian drug trade. Beginning in the 1960s and spanning two decades, Birds of Passage tells the story of how traditional Colombian village life gave way to criminal drug cartels.
Split into five chapters, or “cantos”, this incredibly unique film blends a familiar ‘Narcos’ style story with an anthropological eye on ancient Colombian customs and culture. Birds of Passage is unlike any epic crime story ever made, taking the Godfather and filtering it through a magic realist filter.

“A visually stunning and often surprising true story… this is a south-of-the-border drug epic like you’ve never seen before” Variety

Country: Colombia
