El Encanto de la Magdalena - (Der Zauber der Magdalena)

This dance film delves into the legends of the Colombian Caribbean. Once upon a time, a legendary person lived in the mangrove forests on the banks of the Magdalena River: “Mohana” or “Mohan”, who knew the power of plants and helped the grieving souls. When the Spanish invasion came, it brought grief and destruction to the population. Mohana/Mohan persecuted the Spanish explorers to make them pay for their crimes. The passage of centuries did not erase the story, it catapulted it into the future: Mohana/Mohan sails on the river, sings sad songs and disappears into caves that no one wants to visit at night.
