CAMRA Screening with Director at Slought: "Nos están matando / They're Killing Us"
Saturday, September 29, 2018 from 6:30-8:30pm.
Slought, 4017 Walnut Street
Slought are pleased to announce Nos están matando / They're Killing Us, documentary film program and public conversation about the systematic murder of social leaders in Colombia, on Saturday September 29, 2018 from 6:30-8:30pm. The film screening will be followed by a discussion with filmmakers Emily Wright, Tom Laffay, and Daniel Bustos Echeverry; Afro-descendent social leader Héctor Marino Carabalí, founder of the community self-protection group La Guardia Cimarrona in the department of Cauca; and visual anthropologist and documentary filmmaker Alejandro Jaramillo.
As the world focuses on the demobilisation of the FARC rebel group, another war is being waged in Colombia: against social leaders—the very people who are key to building peace and shaping the Colombia’s future. Since the signing of the peace deal in 2016, more than 300 human rights and land defenders have been murdered across the country. Activists are being targeted with impunity in the interests of territorial control, extractive mining, and illicit crop cultivation as state and paramilitary groups struggle for power in the void left by the FARC. As the former head of Colombia’s victims’ unit, Alan Jara, described it as a “massacre in slow motion.” Nos están matando / They’re Killing Us, has become the cry of social movements across the country in the wake of this violence.
The program is presented as part of Slought's ongoing Photographies of Conflict exhibition series, and is co-presented with CAMRA (Collective for Advancing Multimodal Research Arts) at the University of Pennsylvania.
