The Wind Journeys

The Wind Journeys is a 2009 Colombian film, written and directed by Ciro Guerra. It was filmed in 80 locations in Northern Colombia. The film is spoken in Spanish, Bantu, Wayuunaiki, and Ikun.


Ignacio Carrillo (Marciano Martinez) is a vallenato singer from Majagual, Sucre, who decides, after his wife's sudden death, to stop playing and return his accordion, which is said to be cursed, to his master. He is joined by Fermin Morales (Yull Nunez), a teenage boy who admires Ignacio and wishes to become a juglar like him. Carrillo reluctantly accepts, given his loneliness. On Ash Wednesday 1968, Carrillo, Morales and their donkey start a journey throughout several towns in the Caribbean region in Northern Colombia, until Taroa (a small caserio in Uribia jurisdiction), in La Guajira desert, where Carrillo's maestro supposedly lives. During their journey, Carrillo participates in the first version of the Vallenato Legend Festival in Valledupar.
