1982 is not a year, it is a number. It is the number of massacres that occurred in Colombia. Using a Hollywood film from 1919, the film is a portrait of distant and yet persistent peoples and individuals, an observation of the gesture that survives despite the blind light cast upon them by time, routine or indolence.
