Cinema Colombiano: Female Focus II
This sixth edition of Cinema Colombiano is focused on films made by women, transgender and non-binary people, who bring new perspectives about the social and political dynamics of Colombia. It is also the first time we have a whole festival day in Amsterdam. We will present two screenings containing two feature films and two shorts, and a DJ set by Mitze Apocalipze y Chucho Vinilo.
Galu Dugbis. La memoria de las abuelas
Olowaili Green Santacruz | 2020 | Guna Dule Community, Colombia | 8' | EN subs
Women of three different generations of the Guna Dule people, from Urabá Antioqueño, symbolize Mother Earth. They sing and weave molas to transmit knowledge and take care of the planet.
Nuestra voz de tierra, memoria y futuro
Marta Rodríguez & Jorge Silva | 1981 | Colombia | 108' | EN subs
Rodríguez was one of the first female filmmakers in Colombia. Her work is part of Third Cinema, a movement that arose in many parts of the global south using film as a tool for decolonization. In this recently restored film, we see the struggles for land and human rights of Native communities. Nuestra voz... explains much of what is happening nowadays in Colombia.
Catalina Torres & Carolina Navas | 2019 | Colombia | 60' | EN subs
Nikol and Erika dance at the rhythms of Raggamuffin and “Salsa Choke” in their dance collective, but when the rehearsal ends, their blurred life projects keep developing in the hostile slum of Aguablanca District in Cali, Colombia. Their contrasting life stories are determined by violence but also by a resilient happiness, love for dancing and friendship. Nikol dreams to travel to the US to visit her boyfriend, but is afraid her visa will be rejected. Erika remembers her dead parents while worrying about her son’s future. This way, days go by in expectation of answers among dreams that stumble and new ones that rise in the look to become someone.
