Wed Yú

Director: Natalie Adorno.
The word Paez WEDX YÚ means "water fish" and it was the name of the territory of the ancestors of the current shelter in San Andrés de Pisimbalá where is the Archaeological Park of Tierradentro, in the department of Cauca, Colombia. The current descendants of the NASA people are rediscovering their identity and regaining its cultural tradition organizing a meeting of three days. It is a testimony for the recovery of memory and tradition. The meeting is organized by a party host chosen by the community, it is organized around a ritual of harmonization and thanks to Mother Earth. Traditional doctors prepared the remedy of harmonization for the whole community that comes with pleasure. Harmonization for life, peace and coexistence. This is life, not disunity. It is the tradition and anybody could not live without it because a people who do not look to its past is a people that has no clear future. Thus, in this environment that looks to its ancestors, through music, traditional food thanks to the Minga (ancient tradition of community for purposes of social utility.) and the exchange of products and the recovery of a rock, this cultural encounter is made to "recover what eighty years ago was lost.”

Piotr: A Mistranslation

Director: Martín Seeger.
Piotr Herroll’s family had to leave Nacrovia and now lives in exile in Santiago de Chile. Young Piotr is sent to find work. A friend points him out that the Chilean State supports artists; so, he comes up with a play about the story of his unknown country. This carries several problems: he must have Chilean actors, who are less concerned about the meaning of his work. Also, his citizenship credentials are not very reliable. And the language barrier will result in a series of mix ups that will end altering the play. The film is spoken in a made up language, Nacrovese. The continuing use of subtitles is incorporated into the plot games, making Piotr Herroll a unpredictable hero and turning the film into a sharp comedy about the essence of the Chilean self.
