From Epic Pictures and director Jorge Navas comes Colombian thriller Somos calentura (We Are the Heat).
Led by a cast of real-life street dancers from Colombia, and featuring an ensemble of more than 2,000 extras – nearly all Afro-Colombian descent – Navas’ intense drama was filmed in the massive port city of Buenaventura, one of the country’s poorest cities, and a hub of violence and drug trafficking. A group of young former urban dance champions lead a disenfranchised life, struggling to survive and escape the harsh realities of life in this dangerous city. When an urban dance championship is announced at the city, they jump at the chance to regain their past glory and self-esteem – but as the championship progresses, they find their lives threatened as they try to use music and dance to overcome and defy their violent destiny.
Presented in Spanish, with English subtitles.
