DIRECTOR'S NOTE

I CALL THEM SOULS is the story of two policeman who surrounded by different circumstances, end up falling into a spiral that will lead them to destruction. The main attraction of the project is the possibility of accessing the underworld that hides in the bowels of the police,  with the night city as a backdrop. Doing thriller in a context that relativizes heroes and villains and exposes the dirty and motley in the midst of what should be reliable and regulated.

This darkness through which the story passes allows working the atmosphere in light and dark, portraying the psychological fragility of the characters through unstable framing, exacerbating the emotions with the help of sound and music; dwell on the violence of the city, not only from the gesture of killing and dying, but from the colorful, chaotic, rich and vibrant that can be framed within the kitch aesthetic and the brightness of primary colors, mixed with the rough textures of the moldy, rickety and chaotic. Presence of light, color and music in the foreground, seeking to build a universe where desire, sexual and emotional frustration build a Bogota that we do not know.

I CALL THEM SOULS is an audiovisual proposal that seeks to take the viewer out of his comfort place and generates a critical look that leads him to take nothing for granted, to question the dark side of the heroes and the bright side of the villains.
