In El Paraíso, an impoverished neighborhood of Bogotá, nineteen-year-old Ronald is in love with Lady. Their love story is cut short when corrupt members of the Colombian army set up a false combat operation, tricking the young local men into their deaths 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.
