Produced by Viso Producciones
Co-produced by Señal Colombia
(Directed by Viviana Gómez Echeverry
Co-directed by Anton Wenzel)
Camilo is the adopted son of an indigenous couple from the Cocha lagoon in Colombia. He is the only black man in his community and has always felt different. That is why he embarks on a journey in search of his biological origins that will lead him to ask about his double identity of being black and indigenous at the same time.
Just like Camilo, his tribe is looking for its origins
after a long history of violence, displacement and
extermination. Through the sacred plant ayahuasca they learn to be indigenous again.
