Cábala Films
Company based in Chile, Spain, and Colombia, with more than fifteen years of experience in international co-productions. Some of our productions include Children of the Stars, The Secret Life of the Spectacled Bear (ARTE), Full Proof (children’s series nominated for the International Emmy Kids Awards), and Saving Paradise, a series made in collaboration with ARTE.


For a long time, the Amazon has been perceived as an inhospitable area populated by tribes with no history. Everything changed with the discovery of sites with unique paintings dating back more than twelve thousand years.
