A film by Laura Huertas Millán
Production: Laura Huertas Millán (Studio Arturo Lucia)
A journey into the labyrinthine memories of a narrator, who was a witness of the spectacular rise and fall of drug Lords in the Colombian Amazon. Walking through the forest and the ruins of a mansion (a replica of the villa from the television show Dynasty built in the past by a “narco”), our narrator will soon become the protagonist of a meandering and hallucinatory account.
"The Labyrinth speaks to the syncretism of contemporary Colombia, where the disaster of narcocapitalism coexists with enduring precolonial relations to the world, creating an accord between the violence of the drug wars, the violence of European conquest, and possibilities of survival and resistance against both." Erika Balsom
