SYNOPSIS

In the midst of the Latin American and the magical realism boom, Andrés Caicedo living in a provincial town in Colombia was writing film scripts adapting stories of that master of horror, H.P Lovecraft. His obsessions with Gothic literature, with fate and violence were the center of his life and his work, and contributed to shape a particular aesthetic universe which helped create what came to be called “Tropical Gothic”.
