Holy Innocents 2010

The coastal pacific town of Guapí in Southern Colombia celebrates the Holy Innocents’ Day, as a reference to the biblical massacre. The town becomes an harsh place, where the violent reality of Colombia is externalized echoing the current warfare of the paramilitaries and drug traffickers, but also a site of staged societal commentary on the neo-slavery, civil resistance and aesthetic practice.
