Red Jungle

By Juan José Lozano & Zoltán Horváth

Co-presented with the RTS.

French-speaking Switzerland cinema release: Summer 2022

Colombia, March 2008. In the jungle, the oldest communist guerrilla in the world is living its last moments. Raul Reyes, the FARC's second in command, is killed in a bombing. He leaves behind an unprecedented document: 10 years of correspondence with all the conflict's leading players, bearing witness to a fierce struggle. In mixed animation, Red Jungle immerses us in the intimate and political story of a man, but also of a revolutionary utopia that dreamed of changing the world before collapsing.
