Bogota D.C., Colombia
“Entre Nubes” is a sensory and artistic exploration of San Germán, an illegal settlement in southeast Bogotá, and about the life and soul of its inhabitants, the majority of which have migrated from rural parts of the country fleeing violence or searching for better living conditions. This makes San Germán a microcosm of vulnerable populations, where victims of the armed conflict, ex-military, ex-guerilla, native peoples, afro peoples and economically displaced families from within Bogotá converge.
Many neighborhoods in south of Bogotá were intially self-established until their eventual legalization. San German is a living testament of this, and its residents strive for more dignified conditions under precarious circumstances.
Living in an "invasion" neighborhood implies living in a marginal Bogotá. In this Bogotá, land is constantly disputed, the police don't arrive and violence is often first choice in conflict resolution. Here, alliances are fragile and can be bought with money or fear. Nevertheless, people here are resilient and determined to stand tall.
