Corta is a film about the hypnotic extenuation generated by the body movements of sugar cane cutters in the Valle del Cauca (Colombia). Corta is a contemplation film of the gestures of hand labor while the surrounding plantations disappear, a pure cinematic experience about the natural and everyday ritual of a timeless world.
