Colombia in my Arms

Jenni Kivistö, Jussi Rastas, Finland, 2019

90 min.Documentary

In a strongly polarised world, can people find a common ground for peace? Ernesto is one of the FARC guerrillas, who after 52 years of armed conflict are about to hand over their arms in exchange for political participation and social inclusion of the poor. While Ernesto strives for a change, a passionate right-wing politician and a descendant of Spanish conquistadors both want to rescue the country. The polarised society is thrown into chaos in which everyone is afraid of the future and their own survival. The film takes a close look at these controversial interests and dreams for a better Colombia.
