Movie Info

Tomas,an Afro-Colombian teenager who fled the country's Pacific coast pushed out by the war, faces the difficulties of growing up in a city if exclusion and racism. When Jairo, his younger brother and closest friend disappears, Tomas plunges in the streets of the city. His search becomes an initiatory journey that compels him to face his past and to leave aside the influence of his is brothers in order to find his own identity. Through this journey, Tomas reveals a unique perspective of a vibrant and unstable city that, like Tomas, stands on the threshold between what once was and what might be. (c) ArtMattan

Critic Reviews for La playa DC

All Critics (3) | Top Critics (1)

An urban drama limited by its nonprofessional cast and impressionistic, scattered storytelling.

July 18, 2013 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

Though it isn't perfect, this story signals something we need more of, portraying people who have existed and survived in a country where their stories, like the Afro-Colombian soundtrack, ring loud and distinct.

The film only feels interesting when it focuses on looking at what the characters aren't doing and listening to what they aren't saying.
