In El Paraíso, an impoverished neighborhood of Bogotá, Ronald, 19, is in love with Lady. Their love story is truncated when unscrupulous members of the Colombian army establish a false combat operation, tricking the young men of the neighborhood to their death at the hands of the lieutenant’s unit.

Our take

A lo-fi chronicle set in an underprivileged area of Bogóta, Silencio en el Paraíso scans the teenage years of a young man and the romance that he embarks on in the shadow of the country’s revolutionary conflict. An ingenious and sweet award-winning drama, walking only steps away from reality.
