Felipe Guerrero (Colombia) has worked as an editor for more than a decade on films exhibited and awarded internationally. As a producer and director he’s made the documentaries Paraíso (2006) and Corta (2012), which have been selected and exhibited in a wide circuit of festivals. Oscuro animal is his fiction feature debut. In 2012 he founded mutokino, a production and distribution company based in Colombia interested in auteur cinema with an emphasis on formal experimentation and disruptive narratives.
Oscuro animal tells the story of three women forced to flee their homes in a war-torn region of Colombia. Each woman’s journey, marked by terror, takes her on a trek from the depths of the jungle to the outskirts of Bogotá, where each must gather the strength needed to start a new life.
