Screenings

For yet another year, Cine Colombia Avenida Chile opens its doors to become one of our screening venues.

Next to it, the magical Casa Ark, with its republican style and avantgarde facilities, joins us to be one of BAM’s screening venues for 2022.

A total of eleven Colombian fiction and documentary films (six feature films and five short films) either in the post-production stage or recently finished, are part of the 13th edition of BAM to begin their journey in search of premieres, festivals, or sales agents. This year, seven of them want to invite all accredited BAM participants to meet again in front of the big screen to be the first to experience the emotions that these national films bring us, which are very close to being ready to go out into the world and take their first steps.

After more than 20 years, Jacobo is reunited with José Luis, a Catholic priest on the verge of retiring from the clergy due to accusations of child abuse against him. It is to José Luis that Jacobo attributes the cracks in his soul since he was a child, when he left town without saying goodbye. However, in addition to resentment of the priest’s abandonment, Jacobo’s now adult heart harbors mixed feelings of love and lust for this man of God.

Synopsis

Brothels are rarely considered safe or dignified. In the center of Bogotá, the capital of Colombia, a country torn by decades of violent armed conflict, there is a tiny brothel that functions as a refuge for sex workers in Santafé, an area that concentrates all the miseries of a bloodied region. All The Flowers builds an intimate portrait of Tabaco y Ron, a small-scale brothel that protects immigrants in a seedy area where sex is the outstanding commodity. Within its boundaries, the brothel offers an oasis for people desperately fleeing war who arrive completely alone, unprotected and traumatized by armed conflict. All The Flowers presents a complex portrait of this brothel, this neighborhood and its inhabitants' fierce will to flourish.
