Camilo Colmenares
Germany 2015 / 6’

Quimtai presents forms and designs that are the legacy of extinct Colombian cultures. Camilo Colmenares’s short film transports us not only back to the time of the ancestors of modern-day Colombians, but also, due to the form used in the film, back to a time when cinematic history was only just beginning.
