  Film Schedule and TICKETS           Filme           DOCUMENTARIES            FICTION            SHORT FILMS
  We are dedicated to the esthetical richness and thematic diversity that inspires us from Colombian cinematography.

We, the Panorama Colombia Team in partnership with Mobile Kino, along with support from Babylon, will proudly present from the 23th until the 26th of March 2017, the third version of Panorama Colombia, the Colombian Film Festival in Berlin.

In recent years, improvements in security and peace as well as the rise of a clear economic leadership in Colombia, have encouraged significant growth to our cinematographic industry, allowing our country to create its own place in a global market for exhibition, and promote an open discussion about Colombia's cinematography on an influential level. A few examples of Colombian cinematography in Europe include the very well known Colombian Film Festivals in Paris, London and Barcelona. And, now, the newest European city to host Colombia's cinematography: Berlin. The German capital is the next ideal location for our film festival to be hosted, due to Berlin being the heart of a new growing, artistic way of European thinking.

Panorama Colombia puts into perspective an original, selective and attractive programme of films in several different formats, genres and productions, with the freshest content of our cinematography. The exhibition will be structured as follows; one selection of nine feature films, five documentaries films, two short films programs presented by the world tour of the most important Colombian Short Film Festival " Bogoshorts " and a special Video Art and Experimental Film Exhibition produced by Curator Rex in supported by the German association Kunstrial.

Our main objective is to welcome Berliners, and the German public in general, to become aware of the diversity and quality of authentic Colombian films. Showing a whole new panorama of our cinematography. Independent, popular, comedy as well as short films. This is what we have been doing at Panorama Colombia, building up a way to create and promote new public places to help spread and recognize the new Colombian cinematography throughout the world, because our films represents the way to build the peace for all of us.

  Los Nadie / The Nobodies
R: Juan Sebastián Mesa, Colombia 2016, OmenglU, 84 Min

Camilo, Mechas, Manu, Ana and Pipa are five friends going through that blended trance of intense unrest, sense of astonishment, contained tenderness and manifest rage typical of the end of adolescence. They survive at the edge, both physical and symbolic, of a city, Medellin, that attracts and excludes them, that lures them with promises but rejects them with hostility, but which they embrace by transforming the dominant logics of fear that come from above, from the powers that be and from their parents. Music, street art and friendship are their weapons of resistance, and fuel their hope for a journey, a rite of passage that will convert them into someone else.

The Colombian mother looks exactly like the Swedish mother, and the yoga teacher is identical to the Swedish daughter. Now in another part of the world they start a new relationship: the daughter is the teacher and the mother is the student. This unusual situation opens a new understanding of time, as if somehow both mother and daughter had re-incarnated into completely different beings.

Home - the Country of Illusion / Home - El país de la ilusión
R: Josephine Landertinger, Colombia Portugal 2016, OV Spanish, 85 Min

Lilia is a 67-year-old Colombian woman who has made Portugal her last home after a life on the move. Josephine, the film’s director, offers her mother the vehicle of the documentary with which to tell the story of her fragmented life. As the camera follows her, Lilia’s melancholy becomes obvious, but so does her strange fortitude, the way she relates to the spaces and environments she inhabits, her unease toward places from the past and her reasons for making certain decisions. The camera mediates this encounter between mother and daughter, which develops into a revealing dialogue with universal overtones between two people undergoing a transition: a mature woman and a young one, the person being filmed and the filmmaker. Tensions emerge as Lilia recalls her life experiences and the family history, raising fundamental questions about freedom, solitude and notions of home and country. HOME illustrates just what is at stake in the most important relationship in any individual’s life—the bond with our own mother.

Through a look at life on the island, the islanders’ daily struggles, interactions and fight to remain in their territory, Isolated reflects on man’s role as an inhabitant of a larger universe, making this island a metaphor for our world.

  El Silencio de los Fusiles / When the Guns go Silent
R: Natalia Orozco, Colombia 2017, OmenglU, 120 Min

Two enemies long at war with one another decide to sit down and talk. They have rejected and been mutually ignorant of one another for over five decades, meaning that the first thing they must find within themselves are the arguments, language and gestures needed to shift from violence to political negotiation. For four years journalist and filmmaker Natalia Orozco followed men and women on the path to becoming aware of the decisive role they were either forced to play or chose willingly. They are the delegations of the Colombian government and insurgent FARC in the Havana peace talks, leaders and political strategists and the key players—some virtual unknowns—in a process fraught with distrust, not only coming from the public but also the negotiators themselves. When the Guns Go Silent is an exceptional documentary that goes beyond the circumstances of the peace process to show, through powerful file footage, the long history of a war whose victim is the whole of Colombian society. It is also a passionate political thriller built on the tensions and suspense of a fragile negotiations process that is threatened from all sides. The director does not give in to the logic that divides the conflicts into good and bad, nor does she succumb to triumphalism or naiveté. Her journalistic rigour is not compromised by any ideology. She looks everyone in the eyes, listens to arguments, concentrates on the essential, uses her own voice to ask questions and reflects on what she sees and feels. By letting her own humanity show through, she reveals that of everyone else.
