This story of the tortuous, and ultimately successful, negotiations between the Colombian government and the hemisphere's oldest guerrilla movement shows us that making peace is harder than making war. Colombians are now at a crossroads: will the violence continue or will peace prevail? After the screening, director Margarita Martínez will join the event via live stream to discuss her film and answer questions. 89 minutes. Spanish with English subtitles.
Margarita Martínez is a Colombian documentary filmmaker and journalist who has covered the conflict in Colombia. She has degrees in Journalism and International Affairs from Columbia University and was a Nieman Fellow at Harvard University in 2009.
