Under Fire

Bajo Fuego
Latin American Documentary Films Official Competition

This documentary depicts the unraveling of violence towards a group of coca-growing peasants (‘cocaleros’) in the North of Cauca, in the southwest of Colombia, in spite of the signing of a peace agreement in 2016. Filmed over a period of three years, the film shows how the cocaleros seek to change their illegal crops willingly but find themselves in the midst of difficult circumstances. The peasants who once dreamed with peace are once again facing war.
