WINTER CAMPAIGNS

Experimental filmmaker Rafael Ramírez takes Napoleon's campaign to Russia as a starting point for his exceptional feature debut. He presents a singularly mundane reality, but also a disturbing universe of fantasy. Two worlds in conflict where the characters become mere symbols of representation – and a mysterious voice-over is the unique guide for the spectator to cross the border. A pure experiment capable of challenging the viewer’s perception and understanding. A film made of drafts, of modeling and remodeling, creating an intersection of languages that explores the use of forms such as images, texts, and sounds to reach a challenging place in contemporary cinema. It is possible to find great beauty in the film when we accept it as it is, and surrender ourselves to the non-logical.
