DrehorteMedellin, Colombia


    A portrait of a young girl observed from the distance, no intrusion, and no judgement, avoiding narrative elements disturbing the everyday life of the character. Yet placing the action in spaces where we can see through the character and her surroundings. When we stick to her, Leidi will show us where she belongs thus the reality she is in the middle of. A matter of empowering the character as the main narrative tool, the camera would never induce an emotion on its own. That is it, a thin argument, a young mother looking for the father of her child around the neighbourhood, allowing me to dig into her emotional conflict. A Latin-American tale: Leidi lives in the high neighbourhoods of Medellin, Colombia, where the Andes Mountains begin. Barrios looking at the city from the distance, from the top of the hill. They are there, little mothers with no plans in life but having children. Looking out their windows and balconies waiting for the man to come back home. A documentary portraying her live but told from fiction. The aesthetics of faces and landscapes are true portrayal of those places and their people.
