Friday 23 September 2022 In competition by Juan José Lozano, Zoltan Hovath (France, Switzerland, 2022) 92' V.O. With Italian subtitles A political protest film. It is not the first time that animation, with its "gentile weapons" made of lines, colours, drawings, and often symbolic strokes, has dealt with important issues. On 1 March 2008, Comandante Raul Reyes, number two of the FARC, was killed in a raid orchestrated by the CIA and the Colombian army. Along with his body, the soldiers find the contents of his computer: ten years of correspondence written by the man leading the negotiations for the release of 100 hostages, including Ingrid Betancourt. An unbelievable testimony involving politicians, journalists, weapon smugglers, diplomats, and snipers. Red Jungle delves into the mind of the man who led the oldest communist guerrilla warfare with an iron fist, at the time when the revolutionary utopia was slowly turning into a nightmare.
