The Wind Journeys (Los viajes del viento)

Synopsis (momentan nur in Englisch verfügbar)
Ignacio Carrillo traveled all his life throughout the villages and regions of northern Colombia, carrying music and traditional songs on his accordion: a legendary instrument that is said to be cursed because it once belonged to the devil. As he grew older, he married and settled with his wife in a small town, leaving his nomadic life behind. When she suddenly dies, he decides to make one last journey to the northern edge of the country and return the accordion to the man who gave it to him, his teacher and mentor. On the way, he is joined by Fermín, a young mixedraced man who dreams of becoming a “juglar”. Together they start the journey, discovering along the way the enormous diversity of the land surviving all kinds of adventures and understanding the mix of cultures that gave birth to the music they play.
