(A)dios Ivan, Adios
My grandfather Iván Daza was a guerilla soldier killed and disappeared in an ambush in Venezuela in 1966. There is no physical evidence of his death, and his body was never recovered. This short film recreates the scene of the ambush from a poetic lens with information collected from my family and the sole survivor of the attack. It is a tribute to my grandparents Irma and Iván and the love they shared.
