A film about how the world changes, how individual actions and the forces of fate together bring glory and ruin to a hero and his family.  A Homeric tale revolving around the Colombian drug trade from the sixties to the eighties, shady deals, double-crosses, and miscalculations, it becomes a domestic tragedy and a cultural apocalypse. Colombia, 2018, 125 minutes, unrated

“The movie is a knockout.”—David Edelstein, New York Magazine

The cultural richness of Birds of Passage is overwhelming, its sense of detail piercingly perceptive, and its sense of drama rigorously yet organically integrated with its documentary elements.”—Richard Brody, New Yorker

“Never less than fascinating as a piece of ethnology, with magic-realist dimensions that amounts to an origin story of the Latin American drug trade.”—Joe Morgenstern, Wall Street Journal
