TOPOS It is a film that portrays a harsh reality of marginality, but one that has a tender sense of humor, and we did take an innocent look at these street children. It is a film that we filmed 100% in the sewers of an overcrowded Bogotá, a universe with which any citizen of any metropolis of our current world could identify with and a location that represented a great challenge for our production team. The actors were selected in advance and we took them in in a workshop of rehearsals for several months to achieve the truthful and masterful performances they delivered. It is a film set in Bogotá, Colombia, but it could take place in any Latin American city.. Ultimately it is a moving film that shows a dark side of Bogotá and yet finds beauty and fantasy in that darkness.
