Does Columbia owe the preservation of its primary forests to war? This is one of the crucial questions posed by this documentary, which follows Franz Florez in his old bus full of snakes across a rural Columbia that is generally inaccessible. A Columbian vet, Franz is a real snake charmer. He doesn’t hesitate to use them in order to effortlessly cross zones of civil war. In the heart of the jungle he meets up with guerillas in order to invite them to become militants of… species protection! Full of the most surprising characters, this documentary takes us on an initiatory journey of discovery.
