El tamaño de las cosas

The Size of Things | Das Maß der Dinge
Deep in the Colombian rainforest with its eerily creaking trees, lies the magical world portrayed by director Carlos Felipe Montoya, who in 2015 presented Camino del agua at Generation. In his new film, the desire for possessions casts a mysterious shadow on the simple life of Diego, a boy who lives in an unfurnished hut with his father. One day he comes across a wooden chair in the forest, and the proportions of life begin to sway.
