En mørk feberdrøm af en debutfilm fra den colombianske eksperimentalist Camilo Restrepo, som bliver en af 2020’ernes mest singulære filmskabere.

Som en fortabt figur fra en russisk 1800-talsroman, men fanget i et mareridtsagtigt og narkoficeret Bogotá, er Pinky - en mand af ubestemmelig alder og med et blik som en bundløs afgrund - på flugt fra sin fortid i en mystisk sekt. Nu vil han tage skæbnen i sine egne hænder, men ender i et job på et t-shirt-trykkeri omgivet af giftige dampe i en kælder under byen. I sin flugt fra fortiden bliver han blot suget dybere og dybere ned i en apokalyptisk og hallucinatorisk halvverden. Colombianske Camilo Restrepos første langfilm er en feberdrøm på 16mm med virkelighedens Pinky i rollen som sig selv, og i en delirisk iscenesættelse af hans eget liv.

A dark fever dream of a debut by the Colombian experimental filmmaker Camilo Restrepo, who is set to become one of the most unique filmmakers of the 2020s.

Like a lost figure from a 19th-century Russian novel, but trapped in a nightmarish and drug-fixated Bogotá, Pinky - a man of indefinite age with a stare like an abyss - is on the run from his past in a mysterious sect. Now, he wants to take his fate into his own hands, but ends up in a job at a T-shirt printer surrounded by toxic fumes in a basement somewhere below the city. In his escape from the past, he is sucked ever deeper into an apocalyptic and hallucinatory world. The Colombian director Camilo Restrepo’s first feature film is a fever dream shot in 16mm, with the real Pinky in the role as himself, and in a delirious staging of his own life.
