A Paper Tiger

Un Tigre de Papel

Directed by Luis Ospina
Colombia, 2007
Documentary

Synopsis

The life of Pedro Manrique Figueroa, a pioneer of collage in Colombia, is both incomplete and contradictory. Taking his life and work as a pretext, this mockumentary takes the viewer on a journey through history from the year 1934 up until 1981, when the artist mysteriously disappeared from view.

A Paper Tiger Directed by Luis Ospina

Critics reviews

A Paper Tiger is first and foremost a Zelig-like pastiche. Ospina brilliantly sells us on the idea that in the midst of this political turbulence, there’s one man who witnesses it all.
