From majestic mountain ranges with ancient glaciers, virgin jungles, open grasslands, and desert plains, to vast rivers and teeming oceans, Colombia is a country with some of the most extraordinary creatures and diverse habitats on earth. Condors circle the Andean skies, Jaguars prowl the forests, hammerhead sharks and humpback whales swim in the oceans. Birds, amphibians, mammals, reptiles, fish – some of the rarest and most spectacular wildlife anywhere on the planet can be found in Colombia.

It took five years to shoot the 85 locations and 20 ecosystems that appear in the documentary film that explores the country’s landscape. The documentary traces emblematic regions such as the Archaeological Park of San Agustin, the Nevado del Ruiz, the Putumayo region, the swamps, the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta, lakes Fúquene and Tota and moor Chingaza, among others.

Co-presented by Melbourne Filmoteca and the Embassy of Colombia.
