Colombia is a country that has been at war for more than 50 years, due to a social model that benefits the oligarchic minority and at the expense of the poor majorities, who suffer exclusion and violence. This excluding society is being led by a narco-state, financed and supported by the North American government.
The mass graves, the false positives (assassinations of innocent people by the repressive forces of the state, falsely accusing them of being guerrilla fighters), tortures and violations to peasants, because of being “supporters” of the guerrilla movement (Colombia is ranked second in the world for displaced population, as a result of state and paramilitary violence); threats, persecution and repression to political dissidence; it’s every day’s bread for our sister nation Colombia. Colombians live in a country with a terrorist government where human rights don’t exist.
In the middle of this capitalist and patriarch reality, women face all kinds of oppression: economic, sexual, intellectual, among others. In Colombia, there is almost no women’s participation on different government levels, and it’s almost impossible for women from the Left to do legal politics. That’s why every day more women join the oldest guerrilla of Latin America. They decide to fight for their freedom with the ideal of constructing a society of peace with social justice, that is, a socialist society.
This reality is hidden or manipulated by the media, who are at the service of the big capital which has its tentacles spread out over Colombia. These media companies have demonized and stigmatized the female guerrilla fighters of the FARC-EP as sexual slaves of their comandantes.
To help breaking down the media blockade and manipulation is the mission of this documentary, in order to show the real life of the revolutionary women of the FARC-EP.
