Everything is possible in the face, shot in close-up, of a musician who vents all his amassed pain upon his bongo. In this short film, conceived as a reverse shot, or maybe the B-side of a single with many faces –of his previous short, Cilaos (2016) –, Colombian director Restrepo gives voice to the dead, the disappeared, the forgotten that perform a musical in that nowhere in which wounds are not healed but rather they are sung and danced.

Gonzalo De Pedro
