It should be remembered that in the month of June 2021 The audiovisual production company Rhayuela Films confirmed that the shooting of the feature film that will bear the name ‘Rebelión’, in homage to one of the most representative songs of the interpreter called ‘La Rebelión’, has already finished. Federico Durán, producer of that audiovisual house, confirmed the news to the ‘Produ’ portal.

The film was built based on the ideas of José Luis Rugeles, who did his share of the film as director, and Chucky García, Rock al Parque programmer and music critic, who interviewed Joe Arroyo in the late 1990s. “He stayed with the character etched in his mind,” He told the Durán portal about Chucky’s experience with Cartagena.

I was exactly 20 years old and Joe was in his forties, I think. It was very cool because we are writing with José Luis Rugéles, from Rhayuela Films, the script for a film we are making about Joe Arroyo, and finding that cassette was very crazy”, Chucky commented that, in addition, without revealing the tentative title they had for those days of the film, he assured that Joe mentioned him in that audio.

Although all the recording work ended in mid-2021, it is noteworthy that the film had its world premiere last October 25 in Bogotá, but it can only be seen in all movie theaters in the country from the month of november.

The filming took place in Bogotá, where the Hotel de La Ópera and the Tequendama Hotel and Residences were used as locations. Likewise, a house-studio was built in which more than 10 sets were mounted. Added to this work of art is a very demanding prosthetic design to bring us very close to the image and spirit of Joe Arroyo. The film has a great work of research, design, recording and musical mastering, and will also have a very delicate work of VFXDuran said.
