From the producer and director of the Academy Award-nominated Embrace of the Serpent, Birds of Passage is a story about indigenous traditions and the corrupting forces of wealth and power, set against the backdrop of the Colombian marijuana boom of the 1970s.

Essentially a mafia story, the specificity of it’s setting and the focus on the family gives Birds of Passage a unique and eye-opening perspective on the drugs trade.
