"Carlos César Arbeláez has made a deceptively simple film where humor is used as a weapon against the harsh situation he portrays. What comes through is a genuine humanity that is rarely seen in films nowadays. We are proud to be distributing Arbelaez’s first film and look forward to seeing his work in the future," stated Gartenstein.

The film played in several European festivals apart from San Sebastian, including the Rome, Stockholm, and Ronda International Film Festivals. "The Colors of the Mountain," uses a cast of non-professional actors, mostly compromised of children, to tell the story of a couple of kids in the Colombian countryside who try to live their daily lives without trouble despite the conflict between the military and guerilla factions in the region.
