Soul of the Desert

This documentary road movie is a character-driven feature film about Georgina, a member of the indigenous Wayúu tribe, who is also a transgender woman. After decades of solitary exile away from her community, she embarks on a journey to find her family. Walking across the desert to find them, she meets members of the Wayúu community who are struggling with the challenges facing the tribe as a result of corruption in Colombia, the crisis in Venezuela, and a coal mine stealing their water.

(Dir. Monica Taboada Tapia, Prod. Santiago Fernández Suarez)

El mundo wayúu está desapareciendo porque el mundo indígena y el mundo “civilizado” están en conflicto. El aislamiento social de esta mujer es un espejo de la crisis del pueblo Wayúu y de las incertidumbres que vivimos hoy como occidentales, reflejadas en este road movie documental.
