Our take

Winner of Locarno’s Silver Leopard, this kaleidoscopic documentary from the Colombia-born, France-based director Camilo Restrepo entwines different kinds of footage to question the process by which history is constructed. A riveting, poetic look at conflict that ruminates on violence’s many shapes.
