A young girl’s struggle to learn to swim is the subject of a new documentary film that screened at last week’s Sundance Film Festival.
“Dulce” takes place in a coastal village in Colombia where the effects of climate change are already being felt — and raising the urgency of Dulce’s swimming lessons.
The film was executive produced by the actor and activist Lee Pace, who wrote about the film in a recent essay on Medium. The film’s unsung star, he writes, maintains a silent presence in nearly every scene — and has ramifications for all of humanity.
The film, which also screened at the Toronto Film Festival and is featured on The New York Times’ Op-Docs channel, was directed by Guille Isa and Angello Faccini and supported by Conservation International.
