DGC @ Home: Colombia’s LOS DÍAS DE LA BALLENA (Available Virtually July 24)

The Digital Gym Cinema may be closed for the time being due to COVID-19 concerns, but we are working with key distributors and studios to bring you DGC @ HOME, a “virtual theater” experience  featuring films we would normally program at our venue under normal circumstances. All you have to do is click on the purchase links below to have temporary access to our film programming. You can enjoy films from the comfort of your own home using your browser or the distributor’s app. This temporary solution ensures the sustainability of our beloved micro-cinema as a significant percentage of each purchase is passed on to us. Enjoy these amazing independent films and we hope to see you at the movies very soon!


Set in the bustling city of Medellín, Colombia’s second-largest city, Days of the Whalefollows Cristina (Laura Tobón) and Simon (David Escallón), two young graffiti artists who tag spots around where they live. Simón comes from a more working-class background and lives with his grandmother. They are part of an art collective that is the center for a group of young revolutionaries. Cristina is a college kid from an upper-middle-class family who finds herself living with her dad because her mother is a journalist who moved to Spain when threatened by the city’s criminal street gangs. The love that unites them, and their friendship with other artists keeps Cristina from leaving the city as tensions rise when Cristina and Simon’s rebellious, restless spirit leads them to defy this same gang by painting a mural over a threatening tag at the center.
