Room of Shadows

Camilo Restrepo

Wartime. A woman shelters in her room. Memories of photos, films, paintings, and books rise to the surface, resonating with the violence outside. The evocation of these works of art inhabits her solitude and creates a space of resistance for her.

Camilo Restrepo

Born in Medellín (Colombia) in 1975, he lives and works in France. After studying visual arts at the École des Beaux-Arts in Paris, he turned to cinema. He is a member of L’Abominable, an artist-run film laboratory. His films have been selected in major festivals such as Director’s Fortnight in Cannes, Toronto and New York. He has twice won the Pardino d’Argento at Locarno. Los Conductos, his first feature, won the GWFF Best First Feature Award at the Berlinale 2020.
