Cinema Colombiano 2019
On Saturday the 8th of June CINEMA COLOMBIANO FESTIVAL will celebrate its fifth edition in WORM! For this occasion we’ve invited some special guests from Bogotá: both Mario Galeano and Mateo Rivano will be here to conduct their live audiovisual project LA TRAGEDIA RÚSTICA. A surreal work of art and music, shown for the first time on the big screen here in The Netherlands! You can also expect another fine selection of Colombian films, including the Dutch premieres of VIRUS TROPICAL and LOS PROPIOS BATEROS.
Here are some highlights from this years programme:
LA TRAGEDIA RÚSTICA (Los Guaqueros)
An interpretation of 100 years of music history in Colombia is mixed live into an audiovisual work created by Mario Galeano (music) and Mateo Rivano (animation) who under the name “Los Guaqueros” continue the path of revising the powers of local music as they did with their other collaborations Frente Cumbiero, Los Pirañas and Ondatrópica.
VIRUS TROPICAL (Santiago Caicedo, 2017)
Based on the graphic novel by POWERPAOLA, this is a girl’s coming-of-age tale set in middle-class Ecuador and Colombia, featuring mesmerizing DIY black and white animations and a lo-fi Latin-indie score.
LOS PROPIOS BATEROS (Susana Ojeda + Hubert Marz, 2019)
A documentary about the unknown masters of the Colombian music industry: the drummers! Pedro Ojeda (Romperayo) takes us through the stories of the first Colombian drummers who helped shape Colombian tropical music.
LA SOMBRA DEL CAMINANTE (Ciro Guerra, 2004)
The gritty debut film by the director of LOS VIAJES DEL VIENTO, EL ABRAZO DE LA SERPIENTE and PÁJAROS DE VERANO. Two men meet in downtown Bogotá; one is missing a leg, the other is a “silletero,” a man who carries people around for money.
LOS NO FUTUROS
During our first edition in 2015 LOS NO FUTUROS played the soundtrack from punk classic Rodrigo D: No Futuro. To celebrate festival no. 5, they’ve expanded their setlist to create a new soundtrack to CINEMA COLOMBIANO.
Also expect various short films, including the European premiere of RAMONA: LA FURIA NO SE GUARDA (César Barrera Burgos, 2018), more special guests, music by DJ Edgar Nevermoo, Colombian food by Claudia’s Delight,… Too much to mention here; check out the full programme on www.cinecol.nl or follow us on facebook for the latest updates.
