The Oscar-nominated team behind Embrace of the Serpent brings us an equally audacious saga centered on the Wayúu Indigenous people in recent Colombian history.

Torn between his desire to become a powerful man and his duty to uphold his culture’s values, Rapayet enters the drug trafficking business in the 1970s and finds quick success despite the disapproval of his tribe’s matriarch. Ignoring ancient omens, Rapayet and his family get caught in a conflict where honor is the highest currency and debts are paid with blood. A sprawling epic about the erosion of tradition in pursuit of material wealth, Birds of Passage is a visually striking exploration of loyalty, greed, and the voracious nature of change. 125 minutes. In Wayúu and Spanish with English subtitles.

All Cine Latino screenings are free to the public. No registration or tickets are required.
