Documentary Perspectives: Moving Pictures, Moving People --We Women Warriors screening Comments

The School of Communication and Department of Radio, Television and Film, in collaboration with the Center for Civic Engagement presents a free screening of We Women Warriors as part of the Documentary Perspectives: Moving Pictures and Moving People series made possible by a grant from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences. Three native women caught in the crossfire of Columbia’s warfare use non-violent resistance to defend their people’s survival. In Columbia there are 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of whom are in danger of extinction because of the ongoing conflict. Trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbued with hope. We Women Warriors bears witness to human-rights abuses and interweaves character-driven stories about female empowerment, unshakable courage and faith in the survival of indigenous cultures. This documentary tells the story of the generational struggle for the defense of cultural survival and sustainable development.

Special Guest Speaker: Independent Filmmaker Nicole Karsin, director, We Women Warriors
