FREELY INSPIRED
BY A TRUE STORY

Medellin, Colombia. Pinky is on the run. He has just freed himself from the grip of a religious sect. He finds a place to squat and a job in a t-shirt factory. Misled by his own faith, he questions everything. But as he tries to put back together the pieces of his broken life, violent memories return to haunt him, and ask for Revenge.

DIRECTOR

Born in 1975, Colombia, Restrepo has lived and worked in Paris since 1999. He is a member of L’Abominable, an artist-run film laboratory.


His films have been selected in festivals including Toronto IFF and he won the Silver Leopard prize at Locarno twice, for his films IMPRESSION OF A WAR (2015) and CILAOS (2016). His next film LA BOUCHE (2017) premiered at Quinzaine des Réalisateurs.


His latest work, LOS CONDUCTOS (2020), his debut feature film, won the GWFF Best First Feature Award at Berlin IFF.

“Striking and evocative. A fever-dream.
An arresting, committed performance
from newcomer Luis Felipe Lozano.”

“Restrepo’s scintillating first work is
a medicinal film. A cathartic antidote
designed to heal a man’s soul.”
