Birds of Passage

Body

A tale of blind ambition, terrible choices and 'wild grass'. In the arid northern region of Colombia, home to the Wayúu people, we are thrust into an sweeping drama that sows the seeds of the Colombian drug trade and recalls the complexities and politics of classic gangster films.

From the producer and director of the Academy Award-nominated Embrace of the Serpent, Birds of Passage is a beautifully shot and truly gripping story about indigenous traditions and the corrupting forces of wealth and power, set against the backdrop of the marijuana boom of the 1960s/70s.

"The end result is that rare sort of modern classic that feels as if it's been around forever.Sure to become one of the year's most celebrated releases." ★★★★★ - Irish Times
