La Playa DC (Columbia)

Colombia’s 2014 Oscar entry, La Playa D.C. takes place in Colombia’s capital city of Bogotá where we follow three brothers caught between the push and pull of the civil war in the western part of Colombia and the dominating culture and economy of the USA referred to as el Norte. The film focuses on the middle brother (thirteen-year-old Tomas) and his coming of age as an apprentice barber specializing in the intricate cuts popular in a hip-hop-influenced poor section of the capital city.

After La Playa DC, there will be a showing of "Four Years--Crossing Africa by Bike" (photo slideshow with music) followed by a short period for questions
