Movies that Matter and the Amnesty students group Utrecht present The screening of the festival film Impunity of Juan José Lozano and Hollman Morris at the Latin American Film Festival May 11 at 7.30 pm. Followed by a debate.
Paramilitary groups in Colombia have spread death and destruction for years. In 2005, a specially established Commission for Peace and Justice started gathering evidence about the horrific violence. During emotional hearings, their gruesome acts are exposed in detail. The odds of them being sentenced are against, however, since many leading figures come away unscathed.
After the screening the audience has ample opportunity to talk with various experts on Colombia and transitional justice.
The Latin American Film Festival takes place from May 5-12 in Utrecht.
