DocHouse: The Witness

DocHouse: The Witness

The screening on Sun 14 April will be followed by a director Q&A.

The murders of his family in rural Colombia could have inspired a young Jesus Abad Colorado to pick up a gun; instead he bought a camera.

Colorado dedicated the next 25 years to documenting Colombia’s war and became an acclaimed photojournalist.

A year after Colombia’s president signed peace with FARC guerrillas Colorado goes in search of the people from his most iconic photographs, to explore just what it means to forgive the horrors of the past.

While an unexpected meeting forces him to relive his nightmares it also gives Colorado a message of real hope to communicate to Colombia’s new generation.
