FILM SCREENING AND DISCUSSION: WEDNESDAY, 16TH JULY
4:00 - 6:30 p.m.
Cine forum: Uprooting of identities and ways of life: displacement as a form of deterritorialization of the individual.
“In the place where I used to live I didn't have to pay for public transportation neither for other services. If I wanted fish, I fished it, if I wanted banana, I took it from the tree, a tomatoe? I grew it.”
Presentation of the documentary Un país errante (A Wandering country) Colombia, 2013. 52’
Production: Universidad de los Andes and Enlalucha films

Synopsis
What does it mean to leave behind the land in a beaten and usurped country like Colombia?
Migration not only results in an exodus of people, and tangible and symbolic goods. It also produces deterritorialization between individuals and their environment, and shifting identities and lifestyles.
Wandering Country deals in an intimate and detailed way with the story of four groups of people affected by displacement and consequent removal: those who are at risk of being expelled, those wandering without a fixed location, the returnees and those who have decided to start a new life in a strange place.
Afros, Indians, mestizos and whites; all take place in this radiograph of the realities of displacement.

Film Forum:
The vicious circle of IDPs in Colombia: return to their homeland and fund the same conflict that they once tried to escape. Trauma of displacement in individuals.
“I heard the Government is returning lands, that is the reason I am here. I have come for what is mine”
“An advice Marina: just forget all those bad things”.
Screening of the film: “Retratos en un mar de mentiras” (Portraits in a sea of lies) Colombia, 2009. 90’
Screenplay, direction and editing: Carlos Gaviria
Production: Erwin Goggel

Synopsis
Marina, a quiet, mute and amnesiac girl, abused by her grandfather and most of the people around her, lives in a slum in Bogota. After the death of his grandfather, his cousin Jairo, a cheerful and chatty street photograpger, proposes to her to recover the land from which they were displaced years ago. They travel from Bogota to the Caribbean coast of Colombia in an old Renault 4, defying enormous trucks, rugged landscapes and military checkpoints. But Jairo is not afraid of anything and for him, the plan is clear: to find the land title and regain what is theirs. During the trip, Marina begins to remember. Upon returning to his village they find themselves in the middle of the conflict they had fled when they were children.

Production notes
“Portraits in a sea of lies” is a portrait of Colombia, a country that has been in an armed conflict for the past 60 years. Several hundred thousand people have been killed and more than 4 million have been displaced. However, Colombians see themselves as one of the happiest people in the world.
Press notes
“The main challenge was how to personalize the magnitude of the tragedy. As a filmmaker I was interested in the phenomenon of displacement from the point of view of the victims, not the numbers. We did a research focusing more on the wounds than the killings, and the consequences of displacement in individuals, especially in children. We heard many testimonies that were really heartbreaking.
There is in Colombia a very sophisticated black propaganda campaign to discredit victims of displacement, usually portraying them as alleged accomplices of an armed group. This has made the average Colombian react with indifference to their tragedy”*

FRIDAY 18 JULY, 2014
9:30 - 11:00 a.m.
Cine forum: The right of civilian population to declare its territory as a neutral zone during an armed conflict: The case of the Peace Community in San José de Apartadó
“We have been clear. We have said, everywhere, we don’t agree to coexist with any armed groups. No matter they call themselves guerrilla, police, National army or paramilitaries”
Film projection of the movie: Hasta la última piedra (Until the last Stone)
Suiza, 2006. 60’
Direction: Juan José Lozano Production: Earthling productions

Synopsis
On Monday 21 of February 2005 eight persons (including 4 children) were slaughter in the municipality of San José de Apartadó (Uraba Antioqueño) by a group of soldiers of the Colombian army. ¿What was the reason? To be part of the community of peace of San Jose de Apartadó. ¿What was the answer of the government to the declarations made by the international community? Neither condemnation nor rejection to the crime and the order to establish a policy station in the urban part of the town. ¿How did the peasants react to the arrival of the public force? They abandoned the town and established themselves in a state of the community to build a new place to live.
The documentary by Juan José Lozano was made a few months after the massacre, and it constitutes a testimony of the courageous act of the inhabitants of San José de Apartadó to exercise, as a civilian population in the middle of an armed conflict, the right to declare themselves a neutral zone. A right recognized by the Geneva Convention, which was violated by the Colombian government. A rights that became for more than seventy families in a daily struggle, without guns, to live in peace in their own land, for that reason they rather change their home than become IDPs.
35

Production notes
In the mid-90s, the right-wing paramilitary groups and the national army came to dispute the control of the region to the guerrilla group FARC. To resist the effects of war and avoid being displaced from their land, farmers from different villages of San José de Apartado declared their neutrality in 1997, forming a Community of Peace.
Since the creation of the Peace Community, which now covers nearly 1,500 farmers, 165 of them have been killed.
Since the shooting of “Hasta la última piedra” three others were killed in June 2005.
Production notes
“I have been aware of the horrible things that happen every day in Colombia, by reading those scene (in the chronic of the photographer Jesús Abad Colorado in the virtual newspaper El Tiempo) in which the farmers found the decapitated bodies of their relatives, dismembered and partially eaten by forest animals. I felt a huge desire to mourn, a deep frustration of finding the level of barbarism that we have reached in the war in our country”*

Cine forum: The Pavas: three displacement, three returns and the pacific struggle for the restitution of their land.
“A peasant without land is like a fish without water”
Projection and preview of the documentary “Algún día es mañana “
(Someday will be tomorrow)
Documentary of the Chasquis Foundation Direction: Ricardo Torres
Production: Juan Manuel Peña
Colombia, 2014. 70’

Synopsis
Drug trafficking, paramilitary groups and oil palm cultivation: peasant families of The Pavas, a community located in the south of the department of Bolívar, have been displaced three times during the last decade. Currently a huge agro oil palm project is being developed on land that they had previously cultivated. On April 4, 2011 peasant families returned for the third time to The Pavas. Since then, under constant pressure and threats, they have planted food and they have undertaken a peaceful struggle to obtain the title to their land through the expropriation of the companies that occupy them today.
Peasants of The Pavas often tell their experiences through songs, to keep alive their cultural traditions and immortalize a story that no one could tell or write like them.
37

In November 2013, the 123 peasant families that make up the Association of Peasants of Buenos Aires (ASOCAB) were awarded the National Peace Prize: “for fighting peacefully for years to obtain the tenure of their lands in the hacienda The Pavas”.
About the Project “Les voy a contar la historia” (I am going to tell you the story)
The documentary “Someday will be tomorrow” is part of the project “I will tell the story” that focuses all its efforts on strengthening the historical memory of The Pavas community and to visualize their case to the world.
This project is a compilation of live sounds and an audiovisual collection of memories of this rural community, sung and told by its own protagonists, showing the difficult social situation in the region.
This visual art project shows from the inside the rich culture and the experiences of these families who struggle for the recognition of the right to their land and their dignity. By creating ritual spaces through art, the images and video transform the landscapes, and empower their roots in order to allow their experiences to create new meanings and hope for a different future.
Since the beginning of the project “I will tell the story”, the Chasquis foundation has made the following productions:
- “I'm going to sing the story”; a CD collection of the sung stories of the community, published in July 2013.
- A photographic Exhibition in Switzerland.
- An interactive exhibition in Bogota’s Book Fair in May 2014.
- The documentary film “Someday will be tomorrow” that will be previewed in IASFM 15. - A music-documentary theater play (in preparation).
Since 2011, the Chasquis Foundation writes the blog “Return to the Pavas, the right of return with peasant economy and food sovereignty”, a complementary tool for deepening and analyzing the information on the case of Las Pavas: http://retornoalaspavas.wordpress.com
