After fleeing a religious sect that preys on Colombia’s underclass, Pinky finds himself working menial jobs to support his drug habit even as the cult leader, whom he aspires to assassinate, haunts his days and nights.
A rich, 16mm chiaroscuro that tells as much with what it conceals as what it shows, Los Conductos is a vivid, hypnotic ride through the backstreets of Medellín with a man seeking revenge against the cult that ensnared him. The unique visual language of first-time feature director Camilo Restrepo packs dreamlike meaning into his fixed frames, while Luis Felipe Lozano is magnetic as Pinky in this story drawn from his own life experiences. Winner of the 2020 Berlinale Best First Feature award.
