Description

Hypnotic and wise, Patricia Ayala Ruiz’s documentary portrait of Camilo Arboleda Arroyo explores how one man’s presence empowered an entire community ravaged by Civil War. A descendant of slave owners and belonging to a wealthy family, Arroyo fled his life of luxury for the town of Guapi Camilo, a forgotten Afro-Colombian coastal town. Here, he began working as a teacher with misbegotten youths, transforming the education system in the process.
