SPANISH WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES

The origins of the Colombian drug trade, as seen through eyes of an indigenous Wayuu family that becomes involved in the booming business of selling marijuana to American youth in the 1970s. When greed, passion and honour collide, a fratricidal war breaks out and puts their lives, culture and ancestral traditions at stake.

PRICES:


  • It's a story with a striking sense of place - especially the windswept plains - and some wonderfully taciturn performances
    The Times


  • This is film-making that really does push at the limits of storytelling and generic templates, and it's brimming with images and ideas.
    The Guardian


  • It's a mesmerising and transporting drug epic like no other.
    Time Out


  • Really terrific, with the trappings of genre cinema without sacrificing any of the authenticity of the filmmakers.
    Mark Kermode


  • An enthralling, powerful statement and lamentation on the drugs trade's inevitable encroachment upon on indigenous peoples and how gangsters casually destroyed them.
