France/Colombia, 2020, 11′
A long time ago, in the Colombian Pacific, women made a pact with the natural forces to learn to sing. But little by little, all that we spread from our ancestors fell into oblivion. And since then we have been missing something.
Born in Bogotá in 1984, Camila was first noticed for her work as a video maker and for her experimental films such as “Le Soleil Brille” (2007) and “La Mala Hija” (2010). She then left her country and joined the Ecole Supérieure d’Arts of Paris-Cergy. Her first short fiction film, “Pedro Malheur” (2013) won a special mention from the Jury at the Clermont-Ferrand festival in 2014. “John Marr” (2016), her second short film, was financed, produced and directed in France. Her first feature film, “El dia de mi bestia”, is now supported by Proimagenes in Colombia and will be shot in early 2021.
