Alessandro Acito / Colombia / 2010/ 52 min

In Colombia Farc guerrillas (Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia) and regular troopers have been fighting for 50 years. Ingrid Betancourt’s story is just the tip of a huge iceberg: 45 millions of people can tell experiences of kidnapping, murder, torture or impressments. Along the nice streets in Bogota you can see the greatest problem of this civil war: millions of people are encamped in squares and parks, protesting and trying to get by. They are desplazados, evacuated from the countryside. They lost everything because of death threats by some armed group, ending up helpless in a town full of spies and killers. But you can find also amazing stories. Rosita Poveda, for example, is a native peasant evacuated to Bogota, who didn’t resign herself to despair: she’s transforming a rubbish dump in a farm where she teaches organic agriculture also to students from abroad. Rosita is poor, but her project will be always growing…
