Unforgettable phrases Ko Murobushi

When the master said: "concentrate all your energy and breath during the crisis because you are going to imagine, take the dangerous step of sand, if you get distracted your whole body disintegrates" The image had such force in my imagination that I could even take the step and feel the vertigo.

Yuruparí, retratos de un pueblo.

As mentioned in señal memoria "yuruparí, la serie de la otra Colombia" was created by Gloria Triana Varón, a sociologist with a background in anthropology, anthropology allowed her to expand and relate the direct interaction with the communities, which is why she launched 64 episodes of a cultural journey; Triana was based on capturing the Colombia that many of us do not know, that Colombia where there are different ways of relating to the world of rituals and the ancestral in the different territories.

Today viewers are familiar with the rituals and traditions of the different territories of the country, which are practiced since time immemorial, because for Triana it was not enough to know the Colombian popular culture with its traditions, for this reason, for her it was necessary to show how these festivals and manifestations integrate a complex within societies, which at the time were being captured through a camera.

In relation to the above, this documentary has a value in the heritage and culture of the country, which is why RTVC together with the University of the Andes, will be making an exhibition from April 6 to May 19, carrying out three important approaches, which are: the manifestations and cultural beliefs of some regions of Colombia; the sociological and ethnographic perspective of the communities represented and their parties, and the cinematographic and artistic quality of the audiovisual and photographic production.
