Love, Women and Flowers (Amor, Mujeres Y Flores)
Director: Marta Rodriguez, Jorge Silva
- 1990 Sundance Film Festival
In 1987 Colombian filmmaker Jorge Silva died at the age of forty-six. At the time of his death, he was working on Amor, Mujeres y Flores with his companera, Marta Rodriguez, who completed the film, a chilling expose of the political and ecological exploitation (including cocaine smuggling) which takes place in connection with the production and export of Colombian carnations. You may have forgotten what a powerful impact a documentary can have, but after viewing this one, you’ll think twice the next time you buy carnations.
