In a small village in Colombia’s Pacific coast, rising tides and shrinking coastlines make swimming an essential skill for survival. Directors Guille Isa and Angello Faccini explore the journey of Dulce, an 8-year-old girl in the village, as her mother guides her through the rite of passage by teaching her how to swim.
Although seemingly a simple premise, the visually stunning short film highlights the everyday interdependence between humans and the natural environment that surrounds them. With conversations around climate change becoming the need of the hour, ‘Dulce’ zooms the lens in on the urgency of those living with these realities every day. You can watch the film here:
