Cinema of Colombia


Screened in English, this amazing film by director Mike Slee, shows the best of Colombian nature and its wonderful biodiversity, with incredible shots of amazing creatures and landscapes of Colombia. It took five years to shoot the 85 locations and 20 ecosystems that appear in the documentary film that explores the country’s landscape and wildlife. Shot on a $3m budget financed by Ecoplanet Foundation and Grupo Exito, the filmmakers traveled across 78,830 miles including the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains, giving spectators the opportunity to finally see with their own eyes why Colombia is the second most bio-diverse country in the world.
