    • Life on the Edge: Stories from the Colombia- Ecuador border. (Trailer)


      from Inigo Alcaniz Added 77 2 0

      The Colombian-Ecuadorian border of the Amazon basin has turned into an area of human suffering caused by fighting between the FARC (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) guerrillas, the paramilitary and the Colombian Army. In addition, an extremely dangerous environment exists for local civilians and indigenous communities with cross-border activities such as drug and human trafficking. According to the United Nations, the Colombian refugee crisis is the second largest in the world, after Sudan. Colombia has more than 3 million IDPs (Internally Displace Persons), and another 600,000 people have fled to other countries. In Ecuador there are an estimated 135,000 Colombians, but despite Ecuador's liberal policies regarding refugees only 33,000 of these have refugee status. Ecuador receives about 1,000 refugee requests from Colombians each month. "Life on the Edge" is a multimedia project consisting of 12 stories (including video, photography, audio and text) on the effects of the armed conflict has had on the population in southern Colombia and northern Ecuador. Clashes between different armed groups, threats and violence have forced millions of people to flee and abandon their homes for fear of being killed. I travelled from the port city of Tumaco to the jungle town of Pinuna Negro, next to where Raul Reyes was killed when Colombian forces entered Ecuadorian territory in March 2008. I followed the 600km border collecting interviews and photographs of those who have been affected in one way or another by the conflict along my journey (Jan-Apr 2010).

                      How Can a Boy feature documentary film is available as a Video On Demand at http://vimeo.com/ondemand/howcanaboy. How can a ten year-old boy survive on his own in a refugee camp? This is the question that Nimrod Andrew asks himself and us in this heart wrenching examination of the often hidden burden of loss, ever present in the emotions of many of the world’s refugees. Burma has been at war with its own people for over 50 years, people who want only to stay on their land, maintain their livelihoods and live in peace. It was there that Nimrod fled from his village as a little boy, his ethnic group, the Karen, under mortar attack by Burmese soldiers. Somehow he survived 14 years in a refugee camp eventually making his way to Canada and to safety. But loss traveled with him and now Nimrod tries to face the burden he feels every day. Why is he one of the lucky ones to survive the horrors of the civil war? His questions take him back to Thailand and to risk entering Burma illegally. He has to tell the world about what is going on and in the process searches for himself as a child. In this intimate portrayal of a remarkable young man, How Can a Boy exposes the horrors of Burma’s civil war and exposes the painful truth about what it means to be a refugee. “What a success! Congratulations on such a beautiful film. I laughed, cried and felt outrage. Nimrod you are a treasure, Ottawa hit pay dirt by gaining you! Ed and Jane what a powerful film....you did such a great job.” Lucy van Oldenbarneveld, CBC Television A feature documentary film produced by Kublacom Pictures. www.howcanaboy.com How Can a Boy is available as a Video On Demand at http://vimeo.com/ondemand/howcanaboy Film length: 77 minutes Trailer length: 3.08 minutes Director/Producer: Ed Kucerak Writer/Producer: Jane Gurr Editors: Nick Lacelle & Jith Paul Original Music: Andrew Huggett DOP (Ottawa): Harry Ferderber DOP (Thailand): Michael Glowacki Featuring the music of Dominik Baer & Anna Collins-Wakeman
