Edition 1981
28' - 1978 - Comedy, Short - Dialogue: Spanish
Director: Carlos Mayolo, Luis Ospina With: Carlos Mayolo, Luis Alfonso Londoño, Ramiro Arbeláez
Fictional film that simulates being a documentary about filmmakers who exploit the misery with mercantilist purposes. It is a scathing criticism "porno-misery" and the opportunism of the dishonest documentary making "socio-political documentaries" in the third world to sell them in Europe and win prizes.
