    Alis

    Colombia-Chile-Romania, 84', 2022

    age recommendation: 14+

    Through a creative act, teenage girls who lived on the streets of Bogota give life to ALIS, a fictional classmate. As their voices intertwine, the character comes to life revealing their past experiences, dreams and sufferings. The innocent game becomes a descent into hell where their luminous faces guide us to the depths of the dark world they once inhabited only to emerge with new skin, thus breaking the cycle of violence and embracing a brighter future. "Alis" is a psychological documentary, an intimate coming-of-age story of hope revealed through the amazing perseverance of the girls. By closing their eyes, they can believe that a new universe is possible.
