Miedo (Fear)

Paula Ortiz Gónima

Miedo (Paula Ortiz Gónima)


In the apparently calm Colombian city of Cali, we discover how people organise their daily lives to protect themselves from invisible, unpredictable danger. Mistrust, paranoia and an obsession with security are symptoms of a society living under the grip of fear.


Paula Ortiz Gónima (Cali) studied film in Colombia and France. Her first film, Atlantis (2001), was screened at several festivals. Miedo was developed and written as part of a writer's residency at Le Moulin d’Andé–CÉCI in France.
