    • Synopsis
    • It is completely unprecedented in Colombian history for a magnificent colonial neighborhood made up of traditional families and businesses to become home to thousands of homeless people and mafias. It´s streets and old homes were converted into crack houses. This is a documentary that reconstructs the broken memory of Cartucho neighborhood in Bogotá. It´s a story of degradation that represents a society that tries to sweep the dirt under the rug. After it’s violent demolition in 2001 the government built a sterile park that people fear. But the legacy of Cartucho still wanders nearby. We destroyed the neighborhood, but anger remains.
