    Docufiction

    A loving couple spends a century together, while trends, objects and films slowly drift into horror. They will be obsessed with octagonal knobs of coffee pots and anonymous design all of their life. They will age and slowly lose their strength, but they will never lose clarity of thought excluding the outer world, darkening and shuttering their house and withdrawing into themselves, leafing through old encyclopedias about extinct animals.

    Director's Statement

    COLOMBI is a reflection on the last century and two people's precise unwillingness to accept the changes imposed by society. The film tells us about a pure feeling like love and leads us into an intimate universe made of small gestures and radical choices, in which isolation is the only way to survive.
