Film: La Playa D.C

May 2, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 12:00 am


Written and directed by Juan Andrés Arango, La Playa D.C. is a coming-of-age story set in the culturally vibrant, politically and socially turbulent city of Bogotá, Colombia. The film follows Tomas, a young Afro-Colombian barber’s apprentice, on a journey of self-discovery as he tries to locate Jairo, his younger brother, who has recently disappeared. Through the story of Tomas, Andrés Arango portrays the complexities of racism and identity politics in contemporary Latin American cities and produces a fresh portrait of the largely misrepresented city of Bogotá and its inhabitants.

Directed by Juan Andrés Arango, 2012, Colombia/Brazil/France, 90 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles.
