The Commitment of a Country
Felipe Moreno Salazar & Camilo Aguilera Toro / Colombia
Institutional falsehood on the second Colombian Film Law (1566 of 2012). In 2003, the Colombian government launched a Film Law that created institutions and calls to support the production of feature films, boosting the audiovisual industry in the country. In 2012, it launched a second law, which according to http://locationcolombia.com (official portal of the initiative) allows: Colombia to offer a refund or consideration for films totally or partially shot in Colombia, of 40% of the value of the expenses made for cinematographic services and 20% of the value of the expenses made in cinematographic logistics services (hotels, food and transportation items). Most of the feature films made under this initiative focus on aspects such as violence, drugs, the exoticism of women and the landscape. This short film, in the manner of recovered material films, tries to give a critical sense to the publicity of the law and some feature films made under it.
