¡Cine Magnifico! Pizarro (Colombia)
This is a story about the burden of family heritage. It begins when María José, in exile in Barcelona, realizes that – no matter how far she runs – she cannot escape the ghost of her father, Carlos Pizarro, an M-19 commander assassinated on April 26, 1990 after signing a successful peace treaty with the Colombian government. Pizarro is an iconic figure of war and peace in Colombia. Twenty years after his assassination, she returns to her country to understand the causes that led to this murder and to discover a forgotten chapter of the country’s history, silenced by violence and fear.
