In 1906, four men were executed for attempting to kill Colombia’s President, Rafael Reyes. The failed coup is revisited in Federico Atehortúa’s film essay, in which a family accident leads the director to discover the uncanny relationship between his mother, the origins of Colombian cinema, and recent events in the country’s prolonged armed conflict.
