It All Started at the End

Todo Comenzó por el Fin

Directed by Luis Ospina
Colombia, 2015
Documentary
A Matter Of Faith: Three Films By Luis Ospina

Synopsis

“Grupo de Cali” (also known as “Caliwood”), a group of friends in love with cinema, who in the midst of the partying and historical chaos between 1971 and 1991, managed to produce a body of work now considered a fundamental part of Colombia’s film history.

Our take

Our focus on Luis Ospina comes to an end the way he would have wanted: with the beginning. As much a personal memoir as an account of the history of Colombian cinema, this magnum opus confronts the inevitability of death by celebrating life: a life well lived, and unconditionally devoted to film.

Critics reviews

In its heartfelt tragedy, and in the bravery of continuing to film himself, even when at his most vulnerable—on the way to the operating room, or later, post-surgery, his robe bloodied, and his stitched-up stomach exposed, along with his sex—there’s also a great dose of remembering, not merely of his own beginnings as a filmmaker, but of Cali’s entire artistic generation.
