An abandoned shoe, bullet holes in the wall, blood splatter and coffins surrounded by people marching through the streets. A collage hallucinated in memory. Diana Bustamante's debut feature film as a director viscerally addresses the violence that came oozing out of newsreels during her youth, and which so heavily influenced her generation. An extraordinary and necessary essay film crafted entirely from Colombian news archives during the 80s and 90s, which ends up becoming a dreamlike requiem to childhood ghosts and an unflinching critique on the media.
