We are Paula Rendón and Camilo Ramirez, students at the National Film School of Colombia and eternal infatuated with the art of film making. "Vacíos" (Voids) is the project that closes this stage in our professional career, we are counting on you to make it happen! :)
What is "Vacíos" (Voids) about?
Camilo (22) is a charismatic and inmature young “paisa” (Born in Medellín) who lives with his Mother (62) since his dad died.
Ever since Camilo graduated from college, he has felt uneasy about what he has to deal with now that he is a Professional. Frustrated for not being able to do what he really wants, and without actually doing anything to get it, Camilo spends his days between the moments he shares with his best friend Lina, the pleasures of the streets, the comfort of his house and Melissa, the girl he is in love with, trying to slow down the time until the day Lina goes to Spain.
The day of Lina’s good-bye party, Camilo puts on risk his relationships with the three women who define his life, leading him to an emotional breakdown followed by the reordering of his life’s priorities.
Why "Vacíos" (Voids)
This story doesn’t have one particular single start point, I wandered between several things I wanted to talk about like the imminent good bye to a friend, the intimacy issues when you’re going to enter a serious and committed relationship and the paradoxical fact of returning to your mother when you grow up.
Besides, there is a feeling of uneasiness that frames my generation, the sensation of wanting to do nothing, but desiring something else, something bigger for themselves.
