Oscar Ruiz Navia goes back to his hometown (Cali, Colombia) to shoot “Los Hongos”, a story of friendship between two young graffiters. Despite different social and family contexts, the longing for creative freedom unites Ras and Calvin, who roam through the city on a skate or on a bike. A gripping portrait of adolescence and its alienation, the importance of friendship when the most difficult it is to maintain a balance between the moments of fun, sexual discovery, political position or family responsibility.
