BIRDS OF PASSAGE at the Miami Beach Cinematheque

Through Thu Apr 11, 2019

From the Oscar-nominated team behind the genre-defying Embrace of the Serpent, comes the equally audacious saga centered on the Wayúu indigenous people during a crucial period of recent Colombian history. (In Spanish with English subtitles)

“Birds of Passage is an enthralling, powerful statement and lamentation on the drugs trade’s inevitable encroachment upon on indigenous peoples and how gangsters casually destroyed them.”-Martyn Conterio, CineVue

“Guerra and Gallego’s film is no dusty period piece, it is wildly alive, yet it reminds us that no matter how modern we are, there are ancient songs our forebears knew whose melodies still rush in our blood. We are not creatures of one era or another or of one place or another, we are only ever birds of passage between our mythic pasts and our unwritten futures, being tossed around by the wind.”-Jessica Kiang, The Playlist
