The Gospel of Camilo Torres
Diego Briceño, Producer and Director
Hidden away in the national film archives of his home country, filmmaker Diego Briceño discovers a 10-minute filmed interview with Father Camilo Torres, a controversial Colombian figure of the 60's, who marked the history of the continent. Diego embarks on a journey to piece together the lost memory of this radical priest by collecting stories and images from Father Camilo's followers and detractors. The Gospel of Camilo is a personal film set against the origins of Liberation Theology, a movement of revolutionary priests in Latin America. By reconnecting the lost memory of this little-known period of recent history, we realize the significance of this radical interpretation of the Gospels both for warmongers and pacifists today.
