La impresión de una guerra

 

Synopsis

 

(Eng)

For over 70 years, Colombia has been confronted with internal armed conflict. Over the years, the outlines of the conflict have grown indistinct. A climate of generalized violence has gradually settled over society as a whole.

 

Violence and barbarity have worked themselves into every aspect of daily life, and fine traces of it mark the streets. Through a multitude of these traces, perhaps the narrative of this hazy war will finally take a firmer shape.

 

“Impression of a War” offers a vision of some of those deliberate, accidental, ostensible, fleeting or dissimulated marks. They are often signs of the struggle against oblivion, indifference and impunity.

 

(FR)

La Colombie est confrontée depuis plus de 70 ans à un conflit armé interne, dont les contours ont, au fil des ans, largement perdu de leur netteté. Progressivement s’est installé un climat de violence généralisé à l’échelle de la société.

 

La violence et la barbarie ont fini par imprégner tous les aspects de la vie quotidienne, laissant dans les rues ses traces ténues. C’est peut-être par une multitude de ces traces que le récit de cette guerre diffuse prendrait enfin corps.

 

« L’impression d’une guerre » donne à voir quelques une de ces marques, volontaires ou accidentelles, ostensibles, fugaces ou dissimulées. Souvent signes de lutte contre l’oubli, l’indifférence et l’impunité.

 

(ESP)

Colombia se confronta desde hace más de 70 años a un conflicto armado interno, cuyos contornos han perdido con el tiempo nitidez. Progresivamente se ha instalado un clima de violencia generalizada a la escala de la sociedad.

 

La violencia y la barbarie han impregnado todos los aspectos de la vida cotidiana, dejando en las calles sus marcas tenues. Es quizá por una multitud de esas marcas que el relato de esta guerra difusa se encarnaría por fin.

 

“La impresión de una guerra” muestra algunas de estas marcas, voluntarias o accidentales, ostensibles, fugaces o disimuladas. A menudo signos de lucha contra el olvido, la indiferencia y la impunidad.
