What are the greatest risks guerrilleros face today?
After the signing of the Peace Agreement between the Colombian government and the FARC-EP in 2016, more than 200 guerrillas enter a demobilization camp where rebels prepare for a life without arms. The stories of Mabel, Liliana, Juan, and Carlos Antonio, all with the names they acquired in the war, are enmeshed around dreams, ideas, heartbreak, and danger. It documents their experiences within the organization, their reasons for entering, and their look to the future in a country still wracked with violence and unrest. Insecurities arise, however, when armed groups get closer to the demobilization camp, and the government seems unable to fulfill its promises.

“An eloquent documentary. An important audiovisual showpiece for the period in which the country is going through.” – Christiam Chaparro, EL ESPECTADOR

Notes on Film

“Five years ago I came to this country with my wife. Since then, I’ve been reading and trying to understand the nation I was going to live in. In several film productions about the war, I realized that there were many controversies regarding how to end the armed conflict with the guerrillas. After the signing of the agreements in 2016, I thought it was a key moment to document about the insurgency and, above all, to have the opportunity to meet some fighters.” – Sjoerd Van Grootheest, Director.
