Un tigre de papier
(Un tigre de papel)

by Luis OSPINA

Un tigre de papel

Pedro Manrique Figueroa, the alleged percursor of collage in Colombia, has never had a biographer. For a very simple reason: his life is an adventure novel, unfinished and contradictory, constantly tied up in the scintillating uncertainties of oral tradition. Taking Figueroa’s life and work as a pretext, this documentary offers the viewer a journey through history from 1934 until 1981, the year the artist mysteriously disappeared. A Paper Tiger is itself a collage, where art and politics blend together, where truth and lies advance side by side, where documentary and fiction merge.
