documentary - 80' - Italy/Colombia - 2021
directed by

Flavia Montini


CAMILO, 35 years old, son of Colombian guerrillas, returns to his home country after 25 years of exile in Italy. In an attempt to understand his parents' radical choices, he delves into the family archive. Extraordinary amateur films and private writings reveal never-ending conflicts and painful memories.
Those of a father, a revolutionary commander, who sacrificed everything in the name of political struggle, but who saw his dream of justice vanish.
Those of a son, who grew up in the shadow of a charismatic but bulky man, unable to welcome the needs of a child.
Those of a mother. A ghost that has haunted Camilo's dreams since he was 5 years old.
A unique opportunity to bring to life an impossible dialogue, long desired but never really happened.
