Locations Magazine 2010
Colombia Mentioned Again in Locations Magazine
The first time this important specialist publication featured a full-page photo of Medellín’s Metrocable
The 23rd edition of the official AFCI “Locations Magazine” features an article entitled “Spreading the Sunshine” in which international producers are presented with location advantages in several South American countries, with a special emphasis on countries with long audiovisual histories such as Brazil and Argentina. The article, however, also recognized other up-and-coming countries including Chile and Colombia. Also mentioned is the way in which these countries, in the midst of the ongoing economic crises, have secured tempting and innovative financial aid packages for their own projects while attracting international film and television producers, managing to go beyond simply providing services to become international co-producers.

Manolo Cardona, Colombian Star of the Colombo-Peruvian Film “Contracorriente”

Manuel Julián Cardona Molano was born in Popayán on April 25, 1977. The well-known Colombian television actor recorded his first commercial in the city of Cali at age 12. While at university he was encouraged by one of his brothers to join a modeling agency and became the spokesperson for a number of advertising campaigns including Toyota and a TV presenter for Telemundo (“Spanish Edition of People Magazine’s 25 Most Beautiful People” and “El viaje de tu vida”), the Billboard Latin Music Awards 2004, “Spanish edition of People Magazine’s 50 Most Beautiful People” (2005) and many others.

His first national TV job was on the series “Padres e hijos” where he starred for three years (1995 – 1998) after being chosen from among 600 other actors. He has starred in a number of soap operas including Gitanas and Marina broadcast by Telemundo for the US Hispanic audience, Romané (Telemundo - Mexico), El cartel de los sapos (Caracol Televisión 2008) directed by Luis Alberto Restrepo and the Spanish version of “Sin tetas no hay paraíso” (2008) to name only a few.

His film debut came in Emilio Mallé’s Rosario Tijeras (2005) and he went on to star in La mujer de mi hermano (2005) by Ricardo de Montreuil alongside Peruvian Christian Meier and Uruguayan Bárbara Mori. His first Hollywood production, together with Oscar winner Hilary Swank, was The Reaping in which he played a psychopathic monk who didn’t make the film’s final cut. His role in the Disney film Beverly Hills Chihuahua (2008) by Raja Gosnell earned him a Best Supporting Actor nomination from the Imagen Foundation Awards. Cardona starred in the Mexican film La última muerte by David Ruíz and in Contracorriente by Javier Fuentes-León, winner of the Audience Award at five festivals including Sundance, Miami and Chicago.

Construction on Airport Serving Coffee-Growing Region Advances

The new airport designed to serve the coffee-growing region will be ready near the end of 2011. The goal of the project is to open Colombia’s coffee-growing region to business and international tourism. The airport is located in Palestina (Caldas) and construction will begin with a 2,400-meter runway ready to receive Airbus 319 passenger and cargo planes traveling to and from Brazil, Central America and the US; the second stage of construction will lengthen the initial runway to 3,600 meters to allow for transoceanic flights connecting directly with Europe and Asia, thus complying with requirements contained in Annex 14 of ICAO (International Civil Aviation Organization) regulations.

“I’ve had two major working experiences in Colombia, in Cartagena, and mixing the French and Colombian crew works out extremely well. I have a long trajectory as a film technician, it has been 25 years since I started working in this industry and I would dare say that the moment we have this mix, this marriage, it works even better than a purely French, or even purely Colombian film. This union of the two crews, of the two cultures, contributes a lot. About the shooting conditions in town, what I like about Cartagena is that nothing is blocked. Sometimes, it can be a little complicated, as in any city of the world. If you shoot in a French city, or in New York, it may be very difficult. There is always someone willing to help us solve the situation, to understand the needs of the film, at the end everything worked out excellent”.

Alain Monne, Cartagena Director
