In anticipation of its world premiere this week at the 72nd edition of the Berlin Film Festival, Spain-based international sales agent Latido Films has dropped the trailer for the Colombian documentary film Alis, the second feature by the directorial duo of Clare Weiskopf and Nicolás Van Hemelryck (Amazona).
Winner of the Forum Award for Best Project at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam (IDFA), one of the world’s leading documentary film festivals, Alis follows eight teenage girls living in a public boarding school in Bogota, who dream up Alis, a fictional character. As their voices intertwine, the character comes to life revealing their past experiences, dreams and sufferings. The innocent game becomes a descent into hell where their luminous faces guide us to the depths of the dark world they once inhabited only to emerge with new skin, thus breaking the cycle of violence and embracing a brighter future.
Alis will have its world premiere this Friday, February 11 in the Generation14plus at the German film festival.
