La impresión de una guerra

Camilo Restrepo Colombia, 2015

Krystalle's rating of the film Impression of a War

A nimble essay on the metaphorical and physical fabrication of images and the narratives surrounding them. The film stitches together a complex but thoughtful patchwork of anecdotes on image-making at varying scales - from the intimate/personal (tattoos) to mass production (the printing of newspapers) - to construct an impression of the violence, crime and historical pain that haunt Colombia as a nation.
