Palenque is a rhythmic portrait of the first town in the Americas to have broken free from European domination. Guided by motifs of death and the rhythms of life in San Basilio de Palenque this film is an ode dedicated to San Basilio de Palenque, a small town that has greatly contributed to the collective memory of Colombia.
