Noche herida: El penoso transcurrir de los días

Orlando Mora

 

Al final de Noche herida un aviso le cuenta al espectador que la película forma parte de una trilogía de Nicolás Rincón Gille bajo el título de Campo hablado. La importancia de esa adscripción aparece mencionada en alguna entrevista con el director y la destacan varios de los críticos que se han ocupado de ella en distintos medios.

No he visto En lo escondido (2007)  y Los abrazos del río (2010), los otros dos títulos de la trilogía  y supongo que esa circunstancia afecta mi mirada de Noche herida. Lo digo porque no encuentro en la obra algunas de las cosas que en las reseñas referidas se destacan; no veo que en ella se responda a la pregunta “Qué pasa con la tradición popular del campo cuando la violencia viene a destruir completamente, no tanto la tradición sino a la gente”, que anuncia Marta Ligia Parra o lo de “El universo de la tradición oral campesina siempre me ha apasionado”, que menciona el realizador.

Lo que de entrada se encuentra en Noche herida es la lucha silenciosa, obstinada de una abuela por proteger a tres nietos de los peligros del ambiente.  Malviven hacinados en un rancho miserable en las afueras de Bogotá, con vecinos que comparten con ellos el drama del desplazamiento y la violencia. Blanca Rodríguez es la protagonista de la misma gesta heroica de miles de mujeres en Colombia, obligadas a llevar a hombros el día a día y la cotidianidad  de sus familias, con niños y adolescentes que terminarán casi con seguridad atrapados en las ruedas de un destino  que no les brinda salidas.

Rotulado como documental, hay en el trabajo de Nicolás Rincón algunos aspectos dignos de mención. El primero de ellos es la manera como está construido, con una dramaturgia y una puesta en escena que transitan terrenos habituales del cine de ficción. Si no fuera por los créditos finales que informan de la identidad de quienes hemos visto tratados como personajes, el público pudiera pensar que se trata de actores no profesionales en papeles inspirados en la realidad o seres reales interpretándose a ellos mismos.

Algo más intensifica la sensación de ficción y es el tipo de encuadre que se utiliza, con la cámara casi fija y colocada ligeramente en contrapicado (mirada de abajo hacia arriba), un tratamiento visual que por su rigor parece descartar la improvisación del registro. Igualmente los diálogos apuntan a un cuidadoso trabajo de preparación y presumiblemente a un guion que seleccionó escenas y momentos, con un armado que evita las líneas emocionales ascendentes y prefiere permanecer en la repetición de gestos y actos de la vida diaria de Blanca, sus nietos y su vecina.

Avanza también el documental en Colombia y que Noche herida llegue a las salas comerciales es un hecho a celebrar, junto a la revelación de un director interesado en búsquedas expresivas esperanzadoramente personales.

Somos calentura: Las desventuras del cine colombiano Orlando Mora
Uno quisiera dedicarse simplemente aescribir sobre los méritos que encuentra en una obra brillante como la que ha realizado Jorge Navas en Somos calentura,pero esta vez ese deseo debe ceder ante el absurdo de lo que ha ocurrido con ella en su estreno comercial, masacrada literalmente por los engranajes implacables de una exhibición que funciona bajo otros intereses. Ilustremos con lo sucedido localmente, que supongo haya sido igual en el resto del país. Se lanza el filme de Navas en seis de las ciento veintisiete salas del Valle de Aburrá y Oriente que anuncian en El Colombiano su programación diaria y en varias de ellas en horarios compartidos con otras películas. Apenas como referencia citemos que La monja dispone de cincuenta y cinco salas y en horarios exclusivos. Una semana más tarde, el jueves 20 de septiembre, Somos calentura ha desaparecido de cinco de esas seis salas y queda apenas en el Colombo Americano, con una…
Adiós entusiasmo: Los retos del cine joven Orlando Mora
No sorprenden los antecedentes con que en materia de festivales se presenta esta película: estreno mundial en el Forum de la Berlinale en el 2017, premios en el Festival Internacional de Cine Independiente de Buenos Aires, Mejor película y Mejor Director en el de Cartagena del mismo año,exaltaciones en certámenes que privilegian propuestas arriesgadas y de un pleno sabor autoral. Adiós entusiasmo revela de entrada las fuentes en las que ha bebido Vladimir Durány el ambiente profesional en que se ha formado. Lo primero porque cruzan por la obra influencias más o menos reconocibles de ciertos directores, y lo segundo en cuanto pienso que en ella están Buenos Aires y las líneas que distinguen el tipo de cine nuevo que más se valora por la crítica en esa ciudad. Adelantemos algo de lo que verá el espectador. Una madre y cuatro hijos habitan una casa de sala grande y largos corredores; a ella llegarán algunos visitantes, unos que complet…
Sal: Una metáfora fallida Orlando Mora
Con La sirga en el  2012, incluida en la selección de ese año de la Quincena de los Realizadores del Festival de Cine de Cannes, William Vega tuvo uno de los inicios más promisorios del cine colombiano de los últimos tiempos. A partir de las muchas expectativas despertadas con ocasión de  ese filme, el director caleño debió arrastrar la pesada carga que supone en estos casos el reto de una segunda película. Al mirar los créditos de Sal se sabe del largo proceso de gestación del proyecto, que incluyó una residencia en Cine Fondation de Cannes y el apoyo de un grupo amplio de instituciones con objetivos y alcances similares. El esfuerzo de elaboración del guion se siente en el resultado, con elementos dispersos que quieren integrarse en una línea y llegar a la unidad que un buen guion demanda. Sal se inscribe en la tendencia dominante de lo que hoy se valora como el cine más joven y rupturista, que renuncia por principio a entregar todos los datos del …
