EL VIAJE DE LA MARIMBA

The marimba and the balafon are magical instruments connected in their past, which are expressed in the black and mestizo sounds of popular music, folk music, and jazz. We traveled through three continents; we met iconic players of the marimba and the balafon. We reviewed the film and photographic archives that revealed the deep musical relationship between Senegal, Mexico, Germany, Ecuador, the United States, and Colombia.

EL DOBLE SECUESTRO DE SIGIFREDO LÓPEZ

The documentary “The Double Kidnapping of Sigifredo Lopez” tells the shocking story of the 12 deputies from Valle del Cauca who were kidnapped by the FARC-EP in 2002, and the only person who survived: Sigifredo Lopez. After being held captive, Lopez was released, but he became embroiled in a political controversy over his alleged involvement in the kidnapping and death of his colleagues. The documentary explores the truth behind these events and how, almost 20 years later, some of the questions are being answered.

ANA ROSA

I only knew about Ana Rosa, my paternal grandmother, that she was a pianist and that she was lobotomized in the 1950s. Of her, I only have a photo of an identity card.

I wanted to know who Ana Rosa was and understand why they did that brutal act to her.

Why most lobotomies in the world were done on us women.

Ana Rosa is a journey into the history of psychiatry.

LOVING MARTHA

Having broken free from the domestic violence she suffered during 39 years of marriage to her ex-husband Amando, Martha tells her granddaughter Daniela, who is beginning her career as a filmmaker, to make a film out of the personal memoirs in which she narrates her painful past. In this process, despite having gotten a divorce, for over 15 years her family has continued to pressure Martha into spending time with her abuser.
