Documentary Viewing "Strangers to Peace" (19th July, 17:00)

19 July | 17:00 | Iwalewahaus, Bayreuth

We are pleased to invite you for viewing the documentary "Strangers to Peace" and attending Q&A with the film's producer Dr. Colleen Alena O'Brien, who will be visiting us from Berlin. The event is part of the University of Bayreuth colloquium on Latin America.

Synopsis: 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.
