In this presentation, which is the second of a series of classes on the ELEMENTS: earth, air, fire and water, Ken goes into great detail about air, breath of life, that includes stories, myths and examples of how we are interacting with this element every day. This presentation is classroom worthy from grade school to college, loaded with information I'm sure you didn't know. Enjoy! Written by
Soplo de vida is a very interesting film in various ways. It is an ambitious project, thrillers aren't a Colombian speciality but Luis Ospina managed to assemble an interesting screenplay with a very talented cast, led by the always versatile César Mora and the very talented Constanza Duque and Fernando Solórzano. As I said, it is ambitious, but it lacks a certain environment necessary for the film. The essence of Bogota's downtown is captured only partially, but the few holes in the story are well covered by the very unusual and extremely interesting way of narrating, using a series of well-organised and well-conceived flashbacks to tell the story of the prostitute Gaviota.
In summary, a valuable film in Colombian cinema, worth watching and worth recognising as an important step in its director's career.
