The Color of the Chameleon
( El Color del Camaleón )

Andrés Lübbert
2017 - 87 min - Video Full HD - Couleur - Belgique, Chili

During the Pinochet-dictatorship, Jorge becomes an instrument for the Chilean secret services who force him to work for them in an extreme violent way. But he manages to escape and flees to East Berlin.
Jorge is my father. He was never able to speak about his past. He is 60 now and a respected war zone cameraman, operating in most of the world’s conflict areas. He can keep his cool in extreme situations. His closed personality dominated my life and created a strange and distant relationship. Only recently he accepted my questioning and together we confront the ghosts of the past.
