Sinopsis

The latest long-length work by Ospina is the testimony of a dual convalescence, his own after a major health scare, and that of his own film group, the Cali Group, also known as Caliwood, in which a group of friends and film enthusiasts managed to produce a series of films that are now considered to be an essential part of Colombia’s film history. They did so in the midst of the wild and tumultuous 1970s and 1980s. It is not often that we see a film director telling us about his film from a hospital bed. Punto de Vista will premiere this film in Spain, which has already been successful at festivals like that of Toronto or Yamagata.
