Directed by

Carlos Hurtado Múnera

Project Description

After a person's eye is removed due to illness or trauma, the nervous system can generate phantom pain and sometimes hallucinations. Between 2019 and 2021, many Colombians protested against an unjust government and riots started to break out when the police violently attacked demonstrators. One of the most common injuries produced by the public force was eye trauma.
