Birds of Passage
In Colombia's film-contribution to the Oscars 2019, we end up with the indigenous people Wayuu in the Guajira desert in the 1960s. They have discovered that American hippie culture's interest in marijuana can lead to wealth and power. But this new business has devastating consequences and a big family feud blows up, and life and ancient traditions are put at risk. Sylvia Balac writes in Aftonbladet that the film is: "... a seductive beautiful drama about drugs and the price of greed." Camilla Larsson writes in Sydsvenskan: "A visually grand and extremely beautiful film, which is told with the help of magical elements and where the audience, as well as the film's characters, get clues through a shepherd's song, dreams, animals, and nature."
