On the border of Venezuela with Colombia, during the late 80's, two men survive an armed assault in the channels of the Arauca River, in which fourteen of their companions we murdered in the act. The Army accuses them of being guerrilla fighters and tries via intimidation to seize them from the cell where they are being watched over by the local police officer and by the village population, who are desperate to prevent them from being taken away. They say they are simple fishermen, but pressure to yield to the official version is overwhelming.


Rober Calzadilla is an actor, screenwriter and director. He trained at the Juana Sujo School of Performing Arts and, in film, at the Central University of Venezuela School of the Arts. In 2013 he wrote, directed and edited the medium length film El país de abril, an experimental piece in black and white co-produced with Portugal. The project giving rise to El Amparo participated in the Films in Progress section of the San Sebastian Festival in 2015.
