Felipe Monroy, a Colombian director based in Geneva, continues his work on the memory of his country with this new film, Los Fantasmas Del Caribe. Back in Bogotá after many years away, he takes on the task of revisiting his family’s past, one tinged with a violence which echoes that of an entire nation.

With the FARC-government peace process perhaps about to turn the page on over 50 years of war, the director begins his own reconciliation

effort, the result and instrument of which both being this film.

What to do with poorly-healed wounds? And what role can film play in the perilous exercise that is forgiveness? It is simultaneously as son, brother, Colombian and filmmaker that Felipe Monroy tackles these questions and there lies the beauty of the film:

it manages to look the ghosts of the past straight in the eyes, to own the contradictory feelings the story arouses in its author and to

invite us to share.
