2011-17, Camilo Restrepo, Colombia/France, ca. 70 min.
- Thu, Sep 20th 6:00pm
In recent years, award-winning Colombian filmmaker Camilo Restrepo has gained a reputation for striking explorations of personal and political trauma, survival, and resistance. CILAOS (2016) uses the incendiary rhythms of maloya, ritual music derived from slave songs, to tell the story of a woman (played by Réunion Island singer Christine Salem) driven to meet her estranged father after he dies. Loosely based on his lead actor's own story, LA BOUCHE (2017) recounts a father who is called upon to avenge the murder of his daughter. Also on the program: TROPIC POCKET (2011) and LA IMPRESIÓN DE UNA GUERRA (2015). Presented in collaboration with the Video Data Bank. In French, Réunion Creole, Susu, and Spanish with English subtitles. DCP digital. (Ariel Clark-Semyck)
