No Weight Whatsoever
Shot between 2017 and 2018, in Bogotá, Colombia, and Moniquirá (a small town 3 hour north of Bogotá), No Weight Whatsoever presents two apparently unrelated stories. It begins in Bogotá, where a younger contemporary classical music composer gets ready to demo his latest work to a group of friends. And then, in an effortless and subtle manner it moves to a different psychological and physical landscape. Suddenly viewers are taken to the country side where two sisters whose parents have gone missing, figure out how to live by themselves.
No Weight Whatsoever is told through the carefully crafted sounds of contemporary classical music composer Orlando Jacinto García, Colombian popular tunes composed by John Cortes, and the engulfing sounds of the landscapes where the film takes place.
