Turco, a fisherman in the Colombian Pacific shore, mourns the death of his son. While they celebrate the traditional waking rituals, he wanders around the city to perform his own mourning, but time passes and he needs to find a place to bury him.
This is a fiction that works as a documentary. Not only because Ángela Osorio Rojas and Santiago Lozano address the rather untapped reality of forced migration caused by armed conflicts, but also because they neatly explore a sensible universe that features a story of banishment and mourning. With a black and white, expressive cinematography and with attention to detail, the filmmakers follow a man’s pain as he moves through a land marked by rituals, dancing, work, and violence. Siembra is an intimate story that reveals a conflict of great proportions, bursting with life, movement and feelings. And it also features one of the most convincing acting performances in recent Colombian cinema, by musician Diego Balanta. ANR
