La Sirga by William Vega (Colombia, 2012, 90 min.). After escaping from government forces, Alicia seeks refuge at her uncle’s rundown and remote lakeside inn, “La Sirga.” There, on a swampy beach, she tries to settle down, but a brutal war wages around them. Vega dramatizes the violence through strained conversations, the sound of rain hitting the tin roof, the creaking floorboards, and the rumble of distant thunder. With remarkable and eloquent restraint, Vega quietly and intimately immerses us in the conflicts of his native country. In Spanish with English subtitles.
