The night of the minotaur

Colombia
2023, 11'

An innocent start, a granddaughter revisiting her grandmother’s story with archive footage. A fantastic revelation about the past that is turned into a fable in the film. Luz Emilia García is not just the grandmother, but also the woman who pioneered pornographic cinema in Colombia. 

In The Night of the Minotaur, we plunge into a fantastic tale set in this enchanted environment. In a village in the middle of the mountains, where a lighthouse stands out among its tops, a forest is home to a variety of mystical creatures – and it is in this setting that the birds find the place where they will die. Among the archive footage, we discover the story of Luz Emilia García, the precursor of pornographic cinema in Colombia. Her extraordinary journey, intertwined with the imaginary world presented to us by her granddaughter, is a unique narrative that transcends the limits of time and space. (Jéssica Pestana)
