From the filmmakers behind 2016’s Embrace of the Serpent comes another poetic look at South American history. Set in Colombia during a volatile decade of drug trafficking, Rapayet and his indigenous family get involved in a war to control the business that threatens their lives and culture. Birds of Passage is bold and powerful filmmaking that documents a forgotten history of indigenous people in the 20th century.
