Set in Cúcuta, a frontera (border) city where Colombia and Venezuela meet, Frontera City tells stories about the seamy side of life, the dark worlds of drug addiction, prostitution, criminal gangs and violence that sometimes go unnoticed in the midst of a hectic city.
The episode screening in #NZWF19, First Time, deals with the initiation of a child into the criminal world.
Frontera City is the winner of the Direct Selection Award from our partner Bogota Web Fest. In exchange, a NZ show from #NZWF19 will be selected for Bogota’s 2020 edition.
Frontera City is selected for #NZWF19 in the International Narrative category.
