Before feeling passion for any woman in my life, I had already gambled my heart, and violence won it” The transparency of wild and tragic atmospheres takes Arturo Cova to untamed places where indian tribes welcome him. Here he is shockingly surprised by the barbarious Amazon jungle. Despairing loneliness, and insomnia are his only companions. “LA VORAGINE”, the immortal work of José Eustasio Rivera. The most beautiful and dramatic stage production for T.V. of the number one Latin American novel with world wide scope. Magnificent scenarios for the unravelling of passion. A feverish and down to earth portrait of the scriptwriter and film director Lisandro Duque, winner of important national and international film awards, including the first prize to the best script at the International Television Film Festival in Montecarlo. More than eighty actors in an excellent cast. Five hundred extras and the best technicians of the Colombian Television. A serie filmed entirely in the natural settings of the Amazon Jungle and the eastern plains (Llanos Orientales) of Colombia..
