Resum: This article proposes to use the concept of "cosmopolitan cinematic margins" to analyse the paradoxical meeting of the cosmopolitan meaning and discourses of Ciro Guerra's Colombian films and the spatial restrictions and immobility of the rural and remote places in which they are set. Such areas as seen on screen are usually interpreted by urban audiences as exotic locations, independently of their actual distance from cities. The article explores how films that, at first sight, show images of marginal and remote places like the Colombian Amazonian Jungle, when inserted into a global context-such as the hierarchical system of international film festivals-become symbols of cosmopolitan cinematic margins, and represent a country in the global spaces that legitimise the importance of that country's film production. The cosmopolitan cinematic margins in the films of Guerra are then strategically situated in environments of global mobility and international prestige.
