Sonar no cuesta nada / Dreams Cost Nothing (Colombia, 2006)
Dir. Rodrigo Triana
Colombia’s submission to Best Foreign Film category for the 2007 Oscars, this black comedy tells the tale of a group of Colombian soldiers- part of the anti-guerrilla "Destroyer" battalion- who, in the middle of the jungle, find $46 million belonging to the FARC. Deciding to divide the money between themselves instead of giving it to the Colombian government, the soldiers hope to return to civilization and make their dreams come true.
