Film Series: Crab Trap

2009. Columbia. Dir: Oscar Ruiz Navia. With Rodrigo Vélez. 95 min.

This poetic doc/fiction hybrid explores the nuances of social and racial relations in Colombia’s Pacific coast. A man trying to flee his past reaches a remote Afro-Colombian community, only to become involved in its struggles.

The Spanish Film Club Series was made possible with the support of Pragda, the Secretary of State for Culture of Spain, and its Program for Cultural Cooperation with United States Universities.  It was also made possible with the support of Wesleyan’s Latin American Studies program and of the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures’ Thomas and Catharine McMahon Fund.
