Dir. Samuel Córdoba. 2008. Colombia. 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.

Shown with short film "Dulce."
