Documentary on demobilization of former FARC soldiers in Colombia - 1st Colloquium on Latin America


The Chair of Sociology of Culture and Religion and the Department of Religious Studies is pleased to invite you to the closing session of the colloquium on Latin America next Wednesday, July 19 at Iwalewahaus at 17.00.

In this last session, the documentary "Strangers to Peace" will be presented followed by a Q&A with the film's producer Colleen Alena O'Brien, who will be visiting from Berlin.

Below is a brief synopsis of the film and a link to the trailer.

Three former child soldiers face retribution, anxiety, and danger as they attempt to rebuild their lives after leaving the FARC guerrilla army and the bloody Colombian conflict. Strangers to Peace intimately captures the personal stories of Dayana, the market vendor navigating her new identity as a trans woman; Ricardo, the young father secretly clinging to his communist ideology; and Alexandra, the indigenous child soldier, who was forced to leave her family behind in the Amazon. Their stories are told through the lens of filmmaker Laura Àngel, who herself was a victim of FARC violence. https://strangerstopeace.com/
