Chasing After the Wind

Persiguiendo al Dragón (Orig.) / 2014 / Colombia / 60 min

"Chasing after the wind” is a portrait of Gustavo, a marginal character who lives in Gethsemane, a historical neighborhood in Cartagena, Colombia. It’s the contemplation of a shared impermanence, where Gethsemane's debris bears witness of the end of a community, but also of a human being.
