A Bogotá Trip – Feature Film
The Story: Neel’s turning 35 and still hasn’t found purpose in life. Even if he did, he doesn’t have anyone to share life’s beautiful moments with. That’s why he hopes that a trip to Bogota provides the spark he needs.
Meanwhile, Violet brings her two best friends to Colombia to recreate the fun she had there while studying abroad.
Their worlds collide when they bump into each other, but growing closer could spell disaster for their lives back home.
Why Colombia?: Phil Svitek has a friend named Edgar who lives in Bogotá and one of the main actresses is Colombian. And it’s a place Phil was (and is) deeply fascinated by given its rich history and culture, far beyond the drugs and violence many of us associate with Colombia. He wanted to showcase that, but not as a documentary or travel vlog.
