Freely inspired by a true story. Medellin, Colombia. Pinky is on the run. He has just freed himself from the grip of a religious sect. He finds a place to squat and a job in a t-shirt factory. Misled by his own faith, he questions everything. But as he tries to put back together with the pieces of his broken life, violent memories return to haunt him and ask for revenge.
Columbian filmmaker Camilo Restrepo gained great reputation as he was invited to distinguished film festivals for his 16mm short films. His long-awaited first feature film was also produced in 16mm. Los Conductos tells the story of Pinky, a young man who is always on the run. Working at an illegal sweatshop, Pinky runs around the city hoping to escape this hell-like tunnel of life. The city, which is in a political situation that is about to explode soon, is depicted very realistic and apocalyptic, causing tension to the story. The film intersects with the nation’s history and the magic of cinema and creates a metaphor for Colombia’s present, full of vitality despite political depression. (Sung MOON)
