A Time to Die

Tiempo de morir

Directed by Jorge Alí Triana
Colombia, Cuba, 1986


A man is released from prison, and after 18 years, returns to his “pueblo” (village). But in this village, time, in many ways, has stood still. The time served by Juan complied with the court’s justice, but not with some villagers. There are some who still seek true justice.
