Palenque is a rhythmic portrait of San Basilio de Palenque, the first town in the Americas to have broken free from European domination. Guided by the inherent rhythms of day-to-day life—the blows of a machete, the grinding of corn, a woman lulling a baby to sleep—it searches for musicality in a town where music is woven into its history. Palenque examines our relationship to music as an essential part of our existence and as a tool to overcome pain and trauma. This short film is an ode to a place where the real and the mythical flow seamlessly together, a small town that has greatly contributed to the collective memory of Colombia.
