Documentary Perspectives: We Women Warriors
Monday, April 22
We Women Warriors
7:00 PM – Mack Student Center Theater, North Campus
Three native women caught in the crossfire of Columbia’s warfare use nonviolent resistance to defend their people’s survival. In Columbia there are 102 aboriginal groups, one-third of whom are in danger of extinction because of the ongoing conflict. Trapped in a protracted predicament financed by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading and creating transformation imbubed with hope. We Women Warriors bears witness to human-rights abuses and interweaves character-driven stories about female empowerment, unshakable courage and faith in the survival of indigenous cultures.
Special Guest: Filmmaker Nicole Karsin
