THE MONUMENT OF PUERTO RESISTENCIA

(feature length documentary)

90 minutes, Colombia 2022

Work-in-progress


Produced by Viso Producciones

Directed by Anton Wenzel y Viviana Gómez Echeverry

In Cali, Colombia, during the biggest social protest the country has seen in decades, a group of young people takes over the main intersection of their neighborhood. Here they express their dreams through culture, defend their rights and fight to survive since the government has responded to the uprising with brutal repression. The community raises the Monument to the Resistance to commemorate their struggle and as a symbol of hope. In midst of polarizing political debates, biased media coverage and amateur videos of shocking violence and desperation, two local filmmakers set out to regain perspective on what is really going on in the streets.
