In 2015 the artist Fernando Arias made a journey by water and air along the Atrato River in Chocó. The journey resulted in a film, presented on three screens, with music by Robert Lippok. The film was premiered at Colombia’s National Museum.
“The Atrato River runs through one of the most biodiverse forests on the planet. The green forest canopy through which it runs is dense, its waters contain gold. The people who use the river for transport and food are either black, of African slave descent, or indigenous. But armed groups and multinationals are fighting for this land. so it is increasingly a region of displacement and violence”. Fernando Arias
