Colombia, located in the northern part of South America, is regarded by many as a premiere travel destination because of its mountainous terrain and access to both the Pacific Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. Still trying to remove the stigma that the brutal Medellín Cartel had left during the 1980’s, the government of Colombia has been working tirelessly to improve security and safety for tourist. The results have been impressive and has contributed to a recent boom in tourism. Even with the lush landscapes and character filled cities, the real draw of visiting Columbia is the genuine hospitality you’ll experience when you arrive.
Filmmaker Christian Grewe discovered the charm of the Colombian people and the land that they so proudly call home when making his latest film, “Colombia”. Grewe does a fantastic job covering the feel of the beautiful country by using natural sounds and smooth motion clips. By focusing on the people of Colombia, Grewe manages to create a welcoming feel that we all search for when traveling. He also traverses from mountaintops to the depths of the ocean to showcase the diverse beauty of Colombia.This film reminds me how important it is to keep your eyes open and listen to the world around you; there is beauty everywhere, especially in Colombia.
