With the aim to trace expressions of the Baroque and the Neo-baroque in two contemporary films from Colombia and Peru, we will look at the carnivalization of the figure of a national independence hero on one hand and the allegorization of a violent historical past on the other to uncover a neo-baroque temperament that pushes for transformation and renewal of social realities of Latin America.
