Since the launch of the cinema law, the film industry in Colombia has experienced a boom characterized by the production of more than ten films a year, invitations and awards from the most important international film festivals and an increasing film audience. Colombian cinema currently at a vital crossroads in its development , in the last decade has experienced remarkable growth. Pera Film in collaboration with the Embassy of Columbia and the Instituto Cervantes is offering a selection of four films exploring this growth and creativity. Colombian cinema has constructed a discourse of identity and otherness that participates extensively in the formulation of a national imaginary through its representation of Colombian culture or segments of the culture. The selected films from different genres (drama, animation, horror) exemplify Colombian cinema’s new, emerging and vibrant storytelling.
