Colombia in My Arms (2020)
- Documentary film by Jenni Kivistö & Jussi Rastas
The much celebrated peace agreement runs Colombia into chaos. FARC guerrilla Ernesto, poverty-stricken coca farmers, a mysterious aristocrat and a passionate right-wing politician balance at the edge of their morals, as they reach for contradictory dreams for a better Colombia. What happens to a very fragile peace in an unequal country if doing the ‘wrong’ thing may easily be justified as the only means of struggle?
Colombia in My Arms was awarded the Dragon Award for Best Nordic Documentary 2020 at Göteborg Film Festival.
