Every truth has its cost
1989 is considered the most violent year in the history of Colombia, since the constant struggle between drug trafficking and the government hit the population, leaving a large record of dead and disappeared.
The feature film directed by Harold Romo is titled 1989 and this tells the story of Hector, a lonely and veteran detective who has been searching for his family’s killers for 30 years and who during his investigation meets Marta, A woman with computer skills who is also looking for her parents, left-wing journalists, missing in this dark year. Together they become the military target by finding evidence that incriminates the Invisibles, a powerful group in the country, as fear takes over their lives.
According to Romo, he wants to highlight in his film the role of the media, because they become a voice that speaks to the ear of Colombians and that reproduces the news that the Invisibles manipulate to their liking. But at the same time, through his feature film, he wants to make a call for reflection and recognition of the victims of the conflict, highlighting the reality of the country.
"It’s a metaphor for absence, we all tend to forget tragedy over time, but that’s part of memory."
Together with their producer Lucía Cedeño, they hope to release this project in 2024, so they need to find co-producers from Spain, Mexico, Argentina, Uruguay and Bolivia, and international sales agents during their time at BAM.
