The Wind Journeys
Filmfest 2009

Ignacio Carrillo has spent his entire life traveling the villages and regions of Northern Colombia, playing music and traditional songs on his accordion, a legendary instrument that was said to be cursed because it once belonged to the devil. As he grew older, he married and settled down with his wife in a small town, leaving his nomadic life behind him. When she suddenly dies, having decided never to play the instrument again, he decides to make one last journey to the Northern part of the country to return the accordion to the man who gave it to him. On the way, he is joined by Fermín, a teenager who dreams of becoming a “travelling musician” like Ignacio. Tired of his loneliness, Ignacio agrees and together they set out on a long journey and discover the enormous diversity of Caribbean culture as they survive all kinds of adventures. Ignacio tries to convince Fermín to take a different path in his life, having learned that his only led to solitude and sadness, but he has to face the fact that destiny has different plans for him and his pupil.
