LA DESAZÓN SUPREMA: RETRATO INCESANTE DE FERNANDO VALLEJO (THE SUPREME UNEASINESS: INCESSANT PORTRAIT OF FERNANDO VALLEJO)
OFFICIAL SELECTION Chicago Latino Film Fest SF Latino Film Fest LA Latino Film Fest La Cinema Fe Fest Miami Film Fest
"The Supreme Uneasiness...rewards those with a touch of the poet in their soul - or an appreciation for the same." -Windy City Times
Recommended! "Finally, a documentary that makes the writing process as fascinating as the profiled writer - in this case Fernando Vallejo" -Chicago Reader
Colombian biographer, linguist, filmmaker, novelist, musician and biologist Fernando Vallejo came to global acclaim through filmmaker Barbet Schroeder's adaptation of his novel, "Our Lady of the Assassins." Vallejo's writing has been praised for its force and rigor, and critics have singled him out as one of the leading Latin American authors. Considered a provocateur by many for his politically incorrect and bold accusations, he is nonetheless an essential critic of the atrocities committed in his beloved country, from which he was forced to exile (he has lived in Mexico over 20 years). An intimate and extraordinary documentary about an eccentric iconoclast.
Directed by Luis Ospina, Colombia, 2003, 90 mins. In Spanish with English subtitles.
