The film “Lecciones para un Beso,” from the young Colombian director Juan Pablo Bustamante, is a romantic comedy that premiered in movie theaters last April in his native country and broke box office records. The film tells the story of Alejandro’s, a teenager in Bogota who is forced to move to Cartagena where his mother has decided to open a restaurant. There, he falls in love with the stunning Maria. Although she ignores him, he vows to do whatever it takes to win a kiss from her. Inexperienced in love, Alejandro asks three customers from his mother’s restaurant — a romantic, a liar and a materialist — to teach him how to win over Maria. The men agree not only to help the boy, but they also make a bet among themselves to see whose advice results in the kiss.

“Lecciones para un Beso” engages the audience with its light-hearted mix of romance, lies and money! The film was shot in over 20 locations in the historic district of the city of Cartagena de Indias, Colombia and received a grant for the 'Cómo se Cuenta un Cuento' [“How to Tell a Story”] workshop dictated by Gabriel García Márquez and Fernando León de Aranoa, at the International School of Film and Television in San Antonio de los Baños, Cuba.

Talleres Uchawi produces Colombian independent films dedicated to the creation of audiovisual works that combine artistic and commercial elements with quality universal stories. One of the documentaries shot by this production house, Cartagena de Indias: Una historia de cinco elementos, won first prize at the Third Exhibition of New Artists at the 43rd Edition of the Cartagena Film Festival and has sold over twenty-five thousand copies.
