The CINEMA COLOMBIANO FILM FESTIVAL returns on the 24th and 25th of September 2022! It will take place at WORM Rotterdam (on Saturday) and at Filmhuis Cavia (on Sunday), each day with a distinct program filled with Colombian music, food (empanadas!) and of course films that have never been shown in The Netherlands before. Saturday night will continue at WORM with an afterparty filled with tropical rhythms and on Sunday the drums of the Batuta will revive us at Cavia!

HECHO EN VILLAPAZ (Made in Villapaz)
María Isabel Ospina | 2014 | Colombia, FR | 53' | Spanish, EN subs
This film follows the making of Gracia Divina, one of the many films (more than 40) that Victor Gonzalez Urrutia has made in his town Villapaz. Through this plot, we discover the life of Victor –painter, writer, filmmaker, and construction worker– and that of his community surrounded by enormous sugar cane plantations.

A group of kids decides to make a pucha, a collective meal where each one brings an ingredient. While the food gets ready they will play at the creek. Although their parents complain about the pucha, because of the shortage of food at home, they give the kids what they want. Nevertheless, the parents give some important advice: don´t go to the creek! But the children don’t follow it and will have to face tenebrous consequences.
