#EULAT4CultureBE. Screening of "Andakí, a trip of life". Directed by Juan Pablo Méndez



#EULAT4CultureBE. Screening of

Screening organised in collaboration with the Embassy of Colombia in Belgium

A group of scientists and several community members reflect upon life and death while exploring the great biodiversity of a place, which is marked by history, located between the Andes mountains and the Amazon.

This documentary finds the best scenario to reflect upon concepts such as life, death, and the path that moves between them. At the time of the Conquest of America, a group of indigenous people from the Andes sought to escape from Spanish troops and arrive at the Amazon, thus carving the path of what is now known as the Camino Andakí. Within this territory, which suffered the war against Peru, the bloody exploitations of the rubber as well as the horrors of the armed conflict, a group of scientists and several locals established a rich exchange of knowledge, which demonstrates that traditional knowledge and science are complementary.
