FESTIVAL OF FILM AND URBANISM

MAY 9 - MAY 13 / 2018, SLAVUTYCH

I, LUCAS

Colombia, 2017, 71’

Director: Lucas Maldonado

Production: Juliana García Mutis

 

SYNOPSIS

 

Lucas Maldonado analyzes himself in terms of his pain, but also the love for people he has held dear: his filmmaker mother, his architect father, his deceased best friend, the girlfriends. He succeeds in convincing them to lie on a chaise longue and relive the errors, the excesses, the good times shared — the affection is offered. He composes a self-portrait in which the splinters of a fractured generational tale are visible; it is a group picture, the image of a neighborhood and a city.

 

BIOGRAPHY OF DIRECTOR

 

Lucas Maldonado graduated from the Film and Television School of the National University of Colombia, and from ESCAC in Barcelona where he studied Film Directing. He works as a cameraman and artistic director for the theater. His short film “Singladuras” was screened at several international festivals and won the Best Documentary Award in Medina del Campo.
