Cold Kisses

Nicolás Rincón Gille
Besos frios
Belgium, Colombia 2015 / 15’

Cold Kisses documents the memories of parents whose children died as a result of political unrest. These memories are often formed from the details of just a few significant moments that left a mark in their memory and that are now of sentimental value. The events that led to the death of the children in question took place in Bogota. In the film, the Colombian capital symbolizes all of South America, where politics can still lead to dramatic events. Cold Kisses gradually lets the viewer in on the secret behind the film’s subject matter, thus building suspense, which is rarely found in a documentary.
