Synopsis

Set in the Afro-Colombian community of La Barra on Colombia’s Pacific coast, the moody, poetic Crab Trap tells the story of a young man trying to flee his past, and the clash between a remote village and modernity, represented by two intruding foreigners. Daniel, a white man, arrives in the village looking for a boat to leave the country. He intends to stay for only a few days, but due to a strange shortage of fish, the fishermen have sailed far out to sea in hopes of finding new resources, making Daniel’s search for an available boat more difficult. Meanwhile, El Paisa, another white man, has been harassing the black inhabitants of the village with loudspeakers, pumping dance music all day in an effort to drive them out so he can build a resort. The longtime residents have roots that pre-date legal niceties, but Paisa has legal papers. The two outsiders call the village’s local leader’s purpose and power into question while the film explores the nuances of social and racial relations.
