Flor de mármol
15. June 2019
Kr. 120 / 60
In 1997 Flora says goodbye to her beloved Julio Antonio in a street in Bogotá and they agree to meet three hours later at home, but she never sees him again, because that same afternoon he is kidnapped and disappear forever in the midst of the convulsive political climate in Colombia at the end of the 90's.
Flora is a young poet and Julio worked for the defense of human rights and the conservation of natural resources, from the CINEP (Popular Research and Education Center.)
For 10 years Flora searches - a fruitless pilgrimage throughout the Colombian geography. All the while immersed in the writing of a book with verses as a testimony to her insatiable search for lost love. As a female Orpheus, willing to descend to the realm of death to find her beloved, Flora continues irremediably alive and finally performs an act of detachment from her painful past, raising her voice in a song to life and love's many facets.
