A screening of the film The Wind Journeys.
Ignacio Carrillo, an accordion player who has recently lost his wife, believes his instrument to be cursed and travels through the vast Colombian landscape to return it to its rightful owner. He is accompanied by Fermín, a teenager who hopes to be his apprentice.
The stunning cinematography provides a powerful and beguiling setting for a road journey that explores the mystical power of the musician.
Director: Ciro Guerra
