LOS FANTASMAS DEL CARIBE
OmeU (Spanish with English Subtitles)
A return to Colombia after 10 years of absence. I want to understand why my wounds. I confront my family and the painful memories of the past. The history of my family as well as that of the country has been marked by poverty, violence and injustice. During these days Colombia has embarked on a chaotic peace process and faces its past in trying to end more than 50 years of civil war. Can you make peace with your own history, come to terms with yourself and forgive, despite the indelible scars? The Ghosts of the Caribbean ends up being a deep introspection to find the lost memories of the past that still hurt me today.
