Gordo, calvo y bajitoFat, Bald, Short Man

Carlos Osuna

Colombia, Black Comedy/Drama/Animation, 201190 min, HD, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

Antonio Farfán is a middle-aged man who works in a notary's office. He has always believed he is a failure because he is bald, short and fat. Though his mind is never silent, his life goes along almost uneventfully until the new notary arrives: a fatter, balder and shorter man who, unlike Antonio, is successful and loved by others. Dazed and confused, Antonio is now thrown out to the real world where he faces his own fears and ends up living pretty unexpected situations. With an animation style all its own, playing smartly with depth of field, Gordo, calvo y bajito is an impressive cinematic debut, screening internationally and recently receiving a Special Mention at the Warsaw Film Festival.

Cerro Rico, Tierra Rica

Juan Vallejo

Colombia/Bolivia/USA, Land/Social Issues Documentary, 201190 min, HDV, ColorSpanish with English subtitles

More than ten thousand miners in southwestern Bolivia still excavate the slopes and tunnels of Cerro Rico ("Rich Hill"), the richest silver field in mining history, even though most of the mineral resources of the mountain have been depleted. Raising issues of social and economic sustainability, Cerro Rico offers a striking, unsparing portrait of labor in the highlands of South America, creating a universal statement about the historic cost on workers due to global demands for Earth's wealth. Shot in iconic Potosí and in the surreal salt flats of the Salar de Uyuni, where half of the world's lithium is still untapped, Cerro Rico has screened at film festivals all over the world, including the Victoria Film Festival in Canada and FIC VALDIVIA 18.

The Night of the Moon Has Many Hours

Mauricio Arango

Colombia/USA, Surrealist Human Rights Drama, 201016 min, HDCAM, ColorNo dialogue

A young man living in the Colombian countryside wakes up in the middle of the night. With some difficulty he gets up, dresses, and ventures outside. As he walks, nature's presence is felt in a heightened way: animal noises, trees swaying in the wind, and an impenetrable darkness overtake his path. After reaching the river's shore, he wades into the water on a raft with nothing but a long stick to row with and a single light to guide him. Beneath the moon-lit ripples he makes a startling discovery. In the eerie stillness of the night, it is hard to distinguish him from what he finds. He navigates upstream, alone and consumed by the weight of his chore. This short film has been enjoying an international festival tour along with accolades including a Jury's Choice Award at the Black Maria Film + Video Festival.
