LA PLAYA D.C.
Juan Andrés Arango
Tomás, a young African Colombian man who has fled the Pacific coast because of the war, is trying to make his way in Bogotá, a traditionally racist city. There, he will begin the desperate search for Jairo, his younger brother, who has disappeared in the middle of the streets and the bazuco.
Accompanied by Chaco, his older brother, who believes illegal migration is the only escape to marginality, Tomás will carry out an initiatory journey through an Afro Bogotá, discovering the network of spaces that the black population has been creating. In this changing city, Thomas will be forced to test his guts and to set aside everything, fear, nostalgia and the wounds of the past, and thus start again 2,600 meters high, where the sea is far away.
