Adriana Ugarte Actress in Palm Trees in the Snow

“Colombia has an enormous visual wealth. If there is one word that would define my impression of this place, it would be exuberance. Exuberance in the color, the music, the food, the skins, and in people’s behavior. Everything seems rich and warm to me, and this makes the film “Palm Trees in the Snow” so full of life; I think it needed it. Coming to Colombia and seeing these images, you understand why someone can fall in love with a place like this.”
