The films of Campo de la Cruz, Faces and Voices, are a complementary approach to tell the story of the catastrophic floods that occurred in Colombia's Caribbean Coast, during the rainy season of 2010-2011. After several months of heavy rains, the town and houses of Campo de la Cruz were covered under 20 feet of water and more than 30,000 people had to flee from their homes. However, some families stayed behind, built plastic shacks on the side of the road and waited for the water to drain. This multimedia approach tells the story of this people, of those who stayed behind and didn't want to leave their land. But, who is to blame? Produced by Federico Pardo
