Wandering Shadows / La Sombra del Caminante
90min. Directed by Ciro Guerra.
Starring Lowin Allende, César Badillo, Julián Díaz
Mañe is facing a tough economic situation. He’s lost a leg; as a consequence he is unable to find a job, he’s behind on rent, and finds himself at the mercy of bullies. One day he encounters a “silletero,” a man who charges people 500 pesos to carry them around Bogotá… on a chair on his back. A complicated bond forms between them as they both try to come to terms with the past and forge new paths. In Spanish with English subtitles. Nominated by Colombia to the 2006 Academy Awards. A rare opportunity to view the feature film debut of one of Colombia's most celebrated filmmakers.
"Beckett goes to Bogota in Ciro Guerra's wonderfully offbeat 'The Wandering Shadows,' a darkly comic, melancholy low-budgeter." - Jonathan Holland, Variety.
"Guerra proves himself a born filmmaker, deftly calling upon influences from both Italian neorealism and the Latin-American cinema of the '60s in both his casting and his distinctive mise-en-scene. The Wandering Shadows takes cinema's rockiest road - the one that relies upon poetry and metaphors to tell its truth." - Tribeca Film Festival
