Lalo is a sex influencer: he posts photos of his nude body and homemade porn videos for his thousands of followers on social media. He controls his own life, but in private, when out of character, he seems to live in constant melancholy. Following an advertisement, he passed a casting to play Emiliano Zapata in a porn film about the Mexican revolution. Pornomelancholia approaches pornography as a starting point to reflect on the border between the intimate and the public, the real and the virtual, the desire and the need for affection, in a hyperconnected world.

Executive Production : Burning (Colombia) 
Coproduction :
Dublin Films (France)

Writer & Director : Diana Bustamante

Synopsis :
BREAKING NEWS. Blood is everywhere. Violent images are engraved in our memories. A revisit of those to draw a generation of images and apathy. This collage of images, repetitions, and memories, built through the intervention of the Colombian news archive during the 80s and 90s, is, at the same time a personal journey of my childhood, reconstructing a story linked to a generation, a generation that grew by normalizing violence through those constant repetitions of images.

Synopsis :
Jorge lives on the coffee farm he inherited from his father. He is the only one of his generation who has decided to stay in the countryside. The festivities of his village are approaching and with them the reunion with his ex-girlfriend Andrea, who is returning from the city. Her imminent arrival begins to distance him from his cousin Rosa and to destabilize him physically and mentally, taking him away from his work in his plantation, as his crops slowly begin to be destroyed by a severe plague. 

During the chaos of the festivities, Jorge will experience the encounter with a world unknown to him. In the midst of drugs and electronic music, he understands that everything that united him with Andrea has already disappeared and that only fire can turn the ghosts of his past and the plague that attacks his crops into ashes.

Documentary, 88′, 2022

Director : Arnaud Sauli

Production : Dublin Films

Synopsis :

In a forest in eastern Poland, an archaeologist digs to bring to light the traces of the Sobibor extermination center. Thousands of objects that belonged to the victims are emerging from the ground as fragile witnesses. This research must be completed, because the construction of a new museum-memorial is beginning.
How can the Shoah be commemorated on its own site, today and tomorrow, when an era without witnesses is emerging? How does the Shoah continue to work on the history and memory of Poland, of its citizens, within Europe, in a conflicting political context?
The film looks at these questions by showing and hearing the voices of archaeologists, historians, architects, journalists, curators, and visitors linked to Sobibor.

Shooting : 2021 (Poland)

La Desaparición

Short-Film, Documentary, 57′, 2020

Director : Jonathan Millet

Executive production : Dublin Films
Coproduction : Macarena + (Colombia)

Synopsis :  

In northern Peru, deep in the Amazonian jungle, Amadeo is the last man to speak Taushiro. He is old, his body is tired, he knows he will die soon. We follow him in his solitude and his rituals. He uses his native language to talk to the trees, to the spirits of the animals he hunts and to his brother who died a few years ago. By taking a close look at Amadeo’s daily life, the film questions bigger issues : the destruction of the Amazone forest, the disappearance of indigenous people and cultures.
