SHORT JOY // In 1984, Álvaro Ulcué Chocué, a Colombian Catholic priest and indigenous rights activist, was shot dead. The incident looms against the backdrop of a collage of two archive images from the same year. Documentary footage and fictional gangsters capture the state of a country dominated by drug cartels and social unrest.

„In the current conjuncture, It is urgent that indifference be shown as the strength of permanent violence, as a gesture that makes us silent accomplices without realizing it.“ D. Santiago Cortés
