Birds of Passage (Pájaros de verano) The true-to-life rise and fall of rival Wayuu clans in northern Colombia is a 1970s Shakespearean drug crime thriller.
From the filmmakers of the Oscar-nominated Embrace of the Serpent. "Documenting the true-to-life rise and fall of rival Wayuu clans in northern Colombia, the latest film by Cristina Gallego and Ciro Guerra (Embrace of the Serpent) is an unexpected take on the cartel genre.
"Imagine "The Godfather" made by dazzling Latin American directors who combine bravura filmmaking with political awareness and a probing social conscience." - Kenneth Turan, The Los Angeles Times
