Guerrilla girl

Frank Piasecki Poulsen, Denmark, 2005

90 min.DK/Documentary

A story of a young girl who enters the Revolutionary Armed Forces of Colombia (FARC), the largest insurgent group in Colombia. With unprecedented access, Danish director Frank Piasecki Poulsen follows a training course for future guerrilla soldiers, describing the transformation of a middle-class city-girl having to adapt to strict military training, Marxist ideology and primitive conditions of life. From deep within the Colombian jungle, we get the first cinematic in-depth look at the life, trials and tribulations of young men and women who are lead into an ideologically narrow and dangerous life cycle.
