THE FOUR CARDINAL POINTS is a fascinating and unusual documentary portraying four moving stories from northern, southern, eastern and western parts of El Salvador. POINTS brings together four inspiring stories that portray a rich cultural, ecological and social diversity, each presenting a perspective on a country that distances itself from the accounts of violence that prevail in the Central American region.
Kafie’s objective is to show the diversity of the region and to challenge the stereotypical depictions of Central America often represented in the media.
