Review of Colombia magia salvaje (2015)

Moving picture, 144 minutes

Seen in 2019.

I saw a three-part, 144-minute version with English-language narration on SVT, billed as having been produced in 2014.

I understand this was originally produced as a 94-ish minute feature. The first two parts of the version I saw are typically immersive BBC Earth material, whereas the last part is much more science-oriented and includes paintings by native Americans on the tepuis of Chiribiquete, ironically with more bombastic pacing and narration. This makes me suspect a Frankenstein fixup job, but internal dissonance aside, the material is very good.
