    The Columbian forest, a distant and painfully beautiful place, almost inescapable for their inhabitants. Life there is quite and pure: while we follow the pregnancy of Helena as the year’ path, from the midst of daily life emerge stories of pain and solitude, relation with environment and brotherhood. A film that silently grows, catching you slowly, and all sudden it screams in your face. The smooth presence of the actors on their relation with the context, and the soft hand of the director, brings the reality on screen to a new beautiful dimension. Martin Mejia captures the ordinary actions, - some people dry fish, some other harvest their crops-, in such organic way, with silent and observational discipline, with a classy 16mm. A charm approach that altogether makes nature shine.
