IN THE BEAUTIFULLY photographed Corta (Cut), agricultural labourers in southwest Colombia harvest a field of sugarcane using cutlasses. The hypnotic tempo and rhythm of their handiwork is a formidable but rapidly disappearing skill and has a meditative effect, as the men sharpen their blades and chop, chop, chop. When they’re finished, enormous trucks drive back and forth and the countryside is set on fire. This is contemplative cinema at its most potent, with undeniable historical undertones.
