Book Set In/About:

A non-fiction book about Colombia's most infamous drug lord, Pablo Escobar, by one of my favorite authors. It's a great snapshot of both Escobar and that time period of Colombian history.
Movie Set In/About:
"Los viajes del viento (The Wind Journeys)" (2009), directed by Ciro Guerra
A man makes a journey across Colombia to return a musical instrument to his elderly instructor. This movie sounds like a lovely showcase of Colombian terrain and music.
