“A film about stories based on magical realism of an indigenous community in Colombia” The documentary immerses us in the fantastic and magical stories of the habitants of Cabo Corrientes (department of Chocó, Colombia) where a community of Afro-Colombians lives, descended from slaves from the Spanish colonization. They are farmers and fishermen. There is not much left in those elders of the living memory of Africa. Perhaps some remnants of oral literature and stories. An imaginary in which, not so long ago, the spirits lived with humans and the magical realism that appeared in everyday life
