NAME OF FILM: VIRUS TROPICAL
DIRECTOR(S): Santiago Caicedo
STARRING: María Cecilia Sánchez, Martina Toro, Alejandra Borrero
GENRE: Animation Film
SYNOPSIS: Virus Tropical is a brilliantly line-drawn, gorgeous black-and-white film covering roughly twenty years in the life of Paola, born to an average middle-class Bogotá family. Paola is a mischievous, spirited girl, blossoming into a headstrong young woman who’s something of an outsider. The filmmakers beautifully capture Paola’s—and her family’s—travails including new children, domestic dramas, upheavals, and the normal stuff of life, crafting a film of subtle power and nuanced emotional intelligence.
