A mother and her two children arrive at a small island in the middle of Amazonia at the border of Brazil, Colombia and Peru, after running away from the Colombian armed conflict in which the children’s father disappeared. One day, he magically seems to reappear in their new house. The family is haunted by this strange secret and discovers the island is populated by the ghosts of many people whose loved ones’ bodies have never been recovered. An official selection at the Cannes Film Festival.

Speakers: Ana Paula Kojima Hirano, a recent Harvard PhD with a focus on Latin American literature and film theory and the intersection between history and fiction, and Julián Neira Visxkwe, an indigenous Nasa of Northern Cauca, currently a student at Bunker Hill Community College; between 2010 and 2013, he was the coordinator and representative of the communities of Northern Cauca. and since then he has been Director of the Indigenous Council of the University of Valle, in Colombia, and National Representative of Indigenous Students of Higher Education before the National Broad Board of Higher Education (MANE).
