(Cristina Gallego & Ciro Guerra, Colombia/Denmark/Mexico 2018, 125 minutes, subtitles)
Shamanism meets drug running in Guerra’s amazing follow up to Embrace of the Serpent and Wind Journeys (WOW 2010), which tells the true story of the origins of the Colombian drug trade as seen through the eyes of an indigenous Wayuu family. Setting in motion the humble clan's rise to riches, coffee trader Raphayet comes up with a more illicit means to raise the dowry required by his formidable future mother in law. Until now the Wayuu have survived with their customs intact, but upon entering the drugs trade, soon taboos are broken. With heady symbolism and surrealist flashes, this is a striking mix of narco-gangster movie and the anthropological - if colonialism doesn’t get you, then capitalism surely will.
