Birds of Passage follows the emergence of the drug trade from the perspective of the narcotic-harvesting tribes of the Colombian Guajira desert. As American demand for marijuana grows in the 1970s, a cash bonanza hits Colombia and a Wayuu family discovers the perks of wealth and power, plus the dangers inherent in it. A drug-trade fratricidal war puts at risk the family’s new-found status, their ancestral traditions, and their very lives. The directors lend a vivid, colorful ethnographic grounding to this true story of the South American drug wars.

“Superbly crafted. A Colombian crime epic. Both ethnographic chronicle and art-house thriller.” Jordan Mintzer, The Hollywood Reporter.
