Land Within. A nomadic reflection about identity and dreams

There she encounters the indigenous Wayuu who believe in dreams and in their ability to shape what is real. 

She feels a beautiful sense of connection and understanding with the Wayuu, until strange things start to occur to her and to the film crew. 

The desert invites us to reflect on identity, borders and borderlessness, as well as other unlimited places in our minds.
