“Cielo Roto is inspired by my own experience in the search for answers to a health problem and weaves a fragmented story through different documentary and fictional material devices that orbit around the past and the present making similarities, for example, with the earthquake Popayan in 1983. It is a cinematographic exploration about brotherhood and family, about the need to talk about the things that hurt us and that can become in this case and with the excuse of making a movie, a ritual to heal and find beauty in that pain,” he explained.

Finally, we achieved it with the stamina and commitment of all those who participated”, he stated.
