Trivia Birds of Passage
Colombia's submission to the Foreign Language Film Award of the 91th Academy Awards.
The actor who impersonates Rapayet, Jose Acosta, "sneaked into" the casting for the character, because he had always had the dream of impersonating a guajiro, when was auditioning for something else. Months after the casting, he was asked to film a scene and send it.A couple of days after he got the male leading role.
To prepare for the role of Zaida, or Zaerra in Wayuunaiki, Natalia Reyes did a immersion trip to the Guajira that lasted around four months. It included isolate herself in a place in the Rancheria, just like the culture dictates for the girls that are going through the 'majayut'. She learned how to knit as well.
