Time: 7:00pm

Directed by Samuel Córdoba
Country: Colombia
Year: 2009
Length: 90 minutes

A journey into the pile dwelling, Afro-Colombian communities of Tumaco, on the south Pacific coast of Colombia. Giving voice to their residents, this documentary reveals the bravery and wisdom, despite poverty, of lives who are honoring the Pacific: the ocean that feeds and bathes them. Tumaco Pacífico is an immersion into daily life of a culture surviving in an endangered environment.

The 2020 NCLAFF celebrates the festival’s 35th anniversary with an innovative format, a virtual synchronic model. We will start with NCLAFF Conversations | A mini Web Conference: Latin American and Caribbean Film in the Era of Neoliberalism (1985-2020) on October 9 and 10, 2020. We will follow with ten days (October 9 to 18), of screenings/streaming. The films were selected from the hundreds of films shown during the past 35 years of the NCLAFF. The NCLAFF is a great way for students to engage with Latin American history, cinema, and current topics!
