Flower of a Thousand Colours (Karen Vazquez-Guadarrama | Bolivia / Belgium | 23 min.)
FLOWER OF A THOUSAND COLOURS is an intimate portrait of Emiliana, a single mother who tries to survive in a remote Bolivian mining camp at 4897 meters above sea level. Emiliana lives with her children in the middle of the paradise like mountains of Mina Argentina. But appearances are deceptive: the life in the camp is fierce. Those who find tin eat, thoes who don’t, don’t eat. And because the excessive alcohol consumption in the camp, Emiliana has to be constantly aware of the dangers surrounding her family.
Karen Vázquez Guadarrama (22 June 1988) was born in Mexico City and studied film at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Gent, Belgium after spending a year in France. Her films are a search for a rudimentary form of narrative where she explores little events of daily life with great attention to emotions and small details. She makes narrative short films and documentaries. Her first narrative short film “Mont d’Or” was selected at several international film festivals and won the Grand Prix at Kratkofil Plus Film Festival, Bosnia and Herzegovina.
