Cóndores no entierran todos los días. (A Man of Principle)
Director Francisco Norden
In Colombia, since the second half of the Nineteenth century, the two traditional political parties, the liberal and the conservative, have faced a series of civil wars blood-washing the country during almost a hundred years. The last one of these, the so-called period of “La Violencia”, got worst due to assassination of the populist leader Jorge Eliecer Gaitan on the 9th of April, 1948. That day marked the beginning of a terrible and dark time which would last more than a decade wherein a group of hired killers known as “Los Pájaros” (The Birds), played a very important role. That is where we meet Leon Maria Lozano “The Condor”. The film follows the transformation of this character from a humble party member to a gruesome blood-thirst killer.
Director Lisandro Duque
In a hot uphill town, the son of a small poultry farmer dreams to become a radio announcer in the United States. But love comes across his plans not without too many hardships as he is not well-regarded to the eyes of her family as he is unworthy of her favors. The hindrances are so big that our man runs away to the Capital City in his resolution to obtain an American Visa so he could reach to a better horizon.
