  Opening Film:
El Día de la Cabra (Bad Lucky Goat)

Colombia, 2017, R: Samir Oliveros mit Honlenny Huffington, Kiara Howard, Elkin Robinson, 76 Min, OmeU (Creole with English subtitles )

After accidentally killing a bearded goat with their father's truck, two incompatible siblings in their teenage years, embark on a journey of reconciliation. Corn and Rita must find a way to repair the truck in time to pick up the tourists that will be staying at their family's hotel. As they struggle to find the means necessary to conceal the accident, the siblings will visit a butcher, rastafari drum makers, a pawn shop and even a witch doctor, in a 24-hour adventure around Port Paradise.
  Pariente (Guilty Men)

Colombia, 2016, R: Ivan D. Gaona mit Willington Gordillo, Heriberto Palacio, René Díaz Calderón,, 115 Min, OmeU (Spanish with English subtitles )

Mariana, Willington’s eternal love, is preparing her marriage with René, the cousin of her ex-boyfriend. While Willington tries to get her back, the rumour of a thief in town and a series of violent deaths that remind them of a fearful past, will endanger Mariana’s new family.
  La Defensa del Dragón (The Dragon Defense)

Colombia, 2016, R: Natalia Santa mit Gonzalo de Sagarminaga, Hernan Mendez, Manuel Navarro, 80 Min, OmeU (Spanish with English subtitles )

Samuel, Joaquín and Marcos, are three old friends living their lives in downtown Bogotá. They spend their days between Lasker – the legendary chess club, The Caribbean Casino, and La Normanda – a traditional coffee shop. Samuel, 53, is a professional chess player that lives of betting on small matches he knows he will win. His best friend is Joaquín, 65, an accomplished watch-maker who’s about to loose the workshop he inherited from his father. And then there’s Marcos, 72, a Spanish homeopath devoted to finding a formula to win poker matches. These three men have found shelter in the safety of their routines, avoiding to facing up to their failures. But a time comes when they are confronted by reality and causes them to stagger.
  Yo, Lucas (I, Lucas)

Colombia, 2017, R: Lucas Maldonado mit Lucas Maldonado, Camila Loboguerrero, Matías Maldonado, 71 Min, OmeU (Spanish with English subtitles)

Even during these times where testimonials and stories told in first person abound, I, Lucas is an extreme and unusual film. With brutal sincerity director Lucas Maldonado analyzes himself in terms of his pain, but also the love for people he has held dear: his filmmaker mother, his architect father, his deceased best friend, the girlfriends he succeeds in convincing to lie on a chaise longue and relive the errors, the excesses, the good times shared and the affection offered. He composes a self-portrait in which the splinters of a fractured generational tale are visible; it is a group picture, the image of a neighborhood and a city. Without fear of ridicule of self-defamation, Maldonado oversteps the limits of the prohibited. This transgression seems to be a mischievous child’s game, but it reveals moments of frank vulnerability in himself and in others.
Colombia, 2016, R: Clare Weiskopf mit Valerie Guarnizo, Clare Weiskopf , 82 Min, OmeU (Spanish with English subtitles)

What makes someone a good mother? After the tragic death of her eldest daughter, Val left her kids and family behind and escaped into the Colombian jungle to search for her identity. Clare Weiskopf, the director of this film, was 11 years old at the time and couldn’t understand what her mother was looking for. Thirty years later, when she becomes pregnant, she decides to confront her mother, heal the wounds of the past and try to define motherhood on her own terms. She visits Val in her heavenly habitat in the Amazon region of Colombia and films her weaving bracelets in her timber hut, driving her moped to the market and cooking fish on a wood-burning stove. Why did Val hit the road when her two children needed her so badly?
  Ciro y Yo
Colombia, 2017, R: Miguel Salazar mit Ciro Galindo, Esneider Galindo, 107 Min, OmeU (Spanish with English subtitles)

In December 1996, during a trip I made to photograph Caño Cristales, John Galindo, my 14-year-old guide, drowned in front of me. After a long journey back into town, I had to tell his father, Ciro Galindo, that his son had drowned. Without knowing it, everything that happened that day sealed a friendship that continues today. Wherever Ciro’s gone, war has followed him. Displaced several times; his children recruited by the armies of war; his wife Anita, who died of sadness. Outside of the system, yet a victim of the system, Ciro has led an anonymous heroic struggle to live his life on his own terms. Through Ciro’s story, it is possible to understand Colombia’s history. Ciro is a prime witness, on the ground, of a war that seems distant and confusing. CIRO & ME recounts the journey of Ciro to meet his past, in a quest to reconstruct his life and build a future for himself and his son. Ciro’s is a journey into memory, seeking to give words to sorrow, a journey to recover his dignity.
  Paciente (Patient)
Colombia, 2016, D: Jorge Caballero mit Nubia Martinez, Leidy Johana Ortegon, 70 Min, OmeU (Spanish with English subtitles)

A caring mother risks losing her daughter to an aggressive form of cancer. Observational and stripped of any sentimentality, PATIENT grows into a monumental indictment of the heartless bureaucracy that has Colombian health care in its grips. The camera films from three perspectives. One is a tripod at the end of a long white hospital corridor, a door to the right opening into the room where the daughter lies dying; we see cleaners mopping the floor and nurses and doctors going about their daily duties. The second follows the exhausted, limping mother, who time and again must trudge the endless corridors to pry life-saving medication from the system’s clutches, and spend hours in waiting rooms only to be sent back and forth once more. The third camera films the loving mother’s face in close-up, as she cares for her child, talks to her, moves her from place to place, or just keeps watch. And she does it day and night, because the system won’t provide for this kind of care. Director Jorge Caballero’s decision not to film the patient is an inspired one. Here, it’s the mother who’s the paciente. Yes, she’s a victim of the system, but first and foremost she’s a paragon of infinite patience who leaves everyone around her speechless.

  Bio Feature Films:

A forced landing caused by a storm led to a passionate scientist finding a paradise that he would end up devoting his life to. Today, 30 years later, he returns to the Chiribiquete Mountain Range, in the heart of the Amazon, to lead an expedition in which he is reunited with the tepuis, the oldest geological formations on the planet, and the rock art that make it a place of great archaeological interest. That return is narrated by a young director who faced adversity to bring a testimony that mixes both experiences, his and the scientist’s.

A reflection of famous scientist Alexander Von Humboldt on the mystique of an expedition, starts a journey of reflections on science through the exploration of the savannahs and gallery forests of Tomo River, which begins at the Meta department, crosses Vichada, and ends in Great Orinoco. This territory is a large biological corridor, not only between those departments, but also between Colombia and Venezuela, and the point of return of a group of biologists to the area they had been able to research until they had to leave it in the 80’s due to the armed conflict.
