Colombian documentary filmmaker Carolina Navas Gutierrez comes to Gamleby and holds a free screening of her movie Fullhachede. The film is introduced by the photographer herself and the show ends with an artist’s conversation where the visitors have the opportunity to ask questions.
The film is subtitled in English.
”Nikol and Erika dance to rhythms of ragga and salsa in their dance collective, but when the rehearsal ends, their insecure lives in the hostile slum in Aguablanca continues. Their lives are characterized by violence but also by a resilient happiness, love for dance and friendship.Nikol dreams of traveling to the United States to visit her boyfriend, but fears her visa will be rejected. Erika remembers her dead parents and worries about her son’s future.
The meeting with these two female universes is an adventure full of hope, but also a struggle between dreams and reality. ”
