LACIS Announces Summer Film Series on Colombia

The Colombia Support Network and LACIS cordially invite you to a summer film series on Colombia…

This Series introduces the subject of Colombia by presenting all sides of the country: environment, drugs, political history (Plan Colombia), youth, political violence (the Patriotic Union), forced displacement and more. The key film topic will be discussed before and analyzed after each screening. The post-screening discussion will make connections between what was seen in the movie and other aspects of Colombian society that are not directly expressed in the movie. For each presentation there will be a representative from CSN who will lead the discussion.
