Event Details

President Santos inaugurates an international mega-project with champagne – while, just metres away, children who have been displaced by it die. General Reyes boasts that a guerrilla leader has been executed little knowing that, a few hours later, he will be forced to admit that it was the leader of an indigenous community who was put to death. A judge investigating members of the military for the rape and murder of children, dies mysteriously. Workers at a banana plantation have to risk their lives to assert their human rights. This brave and hard-hitting documentary attempts to challenge the impunity of these outrages against the people of Colombia. 'Unseen Colombia' (Colombia/Spain, 2012; 63 mins.) is directed by Unai Aranzad.

UCL-Institute of the Americas proudly hosts this film, in collaboration with the London Latin American Film Festival 2013. Attendance is free of charge but registration is required, due to limited seating capacity.
