September 27, 2021. It is two years to the day since Colombian maverick filmmaker Luis Ospina died of cancer. To commemorate, we are happy announce a presentation of four titles by the King of Caliwood that have never before appeared on VOD.
The nine titles by Ospina that are also available on DAFilms are well known to our viewers. Now we are happy to bring you four more essential works by the legendary filmmaker, coming to our platform on the two-year anniversary of his death.
These titles include an exuberant satire made at the Carnival of Cali, a short about the revenge of a housemaid against her masters (co-directed by Carlos Mayolo, Ospina's collaborator on The Vampires of Poverty), a very early film that utilizes stock footage to gleefully imagine the destruction of Washington D.C., and an idiosyncratic adaptation of Jean-Paul Sartre’s Erostratus, the short that was Ospina’s first project at the UCLA Film School in Los Angeles (and which he shot in the city).
