View of the Condor

Short vignettes reveal the different approaches taken by several Colombian artists in this sensitive documentary directed by Ceclia Posada. Jose Alejandro Restrepo says one needs to use “delirious” methods to approach a “delirious” reality; Alvaro Restrepo says his dances express his “internal searchings”; Andrea Echeverry says she likes the combination of beauty and utility in ceramics; Fernando Botero says his “almost nostalgic” themes reflect his childhood and adolescence. But the film loses focus because Posada doesn't keep the artists' comments together. Several discuss how the violence in Columbia affects their work, and Botero admits that it forces him to spend much of his time out of the country. In Spanish with subtitles. 53 min.
