Birds Of Passage

(Pájaros de verano)

Official Selection for the Best Foreign Language Film Oscar from Colombia!

Poster for the Colombian drama Brids Of PassageThe outstanding Birds Of Passage, by the directors of the Oscar-nominated Embrace Of The Serpent, is set in the Guajira region of Colombia circa 1968, and features members of the Wayúu tribe. Zaida (Natalia Reyes) is being courted by Raphayet (José Acosta). When he gets involved selling marijuana, his success brings money, but it also causes him to risk his reputation, family and loyalty.

Birds Of Passage provides a fascinating look at a culture that employs ‘word messengers’ as middlemen to broker peace and respect traditions that eventually become desecrated. The performances are superb, and the exotic and atmospheric landscapes are as dazzling as the action that unfolds.
