His films have been awarded the Pardino d’Argento twice at the Locarno International Film Festival.

    Camilo Restrepo’s work connects the audiovisual image with traces of testimony, bodies, spaces and experimentation and intervention of various filmic formats and found footage. His view, political, radical and interdisciplinary, contributes to contemporary reflections on the forms of making cinema.

    As part of our focus, we will program Restrepo’s 5 short films as well as his first feature film Los Conductos, a Galeries Distribution film.
    We will also present a free exhibition scenographed by the artist, staging his plastic work and calling by echoes and projections the contents, settings and narrations of his films.
