This is a portrait of a cuban actor who is lost inside his characters and his reality. As we walk
through his life in a Cuba of broken dreams and his weak relationship with his mother, we start to

hope, reflected in an inside journey of a person who doesn’t really know how to deal with
existence, the sense of truth and perception of reality.

Camilo Constain was born in Bogotá colombia in 22 january 1987. His first approximations to art were
through painting and writing. He studied a bachelor degree in arts in Universidad de los Andes in
Bogotá. He had a couple of individual and collective exhibitions where he explored portrait and
abstraction. Painting portraits made him get interested in photography and soon after he graduated from
bachelor degree he got involved in cinematography and cinema. He always had been interested in
writing stories so he found a constructive union between literature and painting. In 2012 he founded his
own production company called El Cajón where he works as a producer, director and cinematographer
