En cenizas is based on a true story. Marco is a man who suffers from an identity disorder, as a consequence of the Colombian armed conflicts that forced him to change his identity multiple times. Set in a mysterious abandoned house, the film shows Marco finding objects that take him back to the encounter with fears and ghosts of the past. A world where old memories still coexist and Marco has to face them, in order to forget that he himself was part of the communist guerrillas. The truth will come to light and he will have to accept the sacrifice and failure of the revolution – Marco will lose everything.
After directing a number of documentaries, young Colombian filmmaker Camila Rodríguez Triana brings us a strong political fiction film that explores the boundaries between cinema, theater and performance. A film about love, family, and memory.
