DIRECTOR Nicole Karsin
In Colombia’s war-torn indigenous villages, three brave women from distinct tribes use nonviolent resistance to fight for their peoples’ survival. Warfare between the guerrillas, paramilitary groups and armed forces imperils Colombia’s 102 aboriginal groups, with many facing extinction because of the conflict. Trapped in a protracted predicament that is fueled by the drug trade, indigenous women are resourcefully leading leading the resistance to the violence and creating transformation imbued with hope.
We Women Warriors bears witness to a neglected human rights catastrophe, interweaving these women’s stories which demonstrate female empowerment, unshakable courage and faith in the endurance of indigenous culture.
“Karsin’s intimate film captures a stinging sense of civil war’s true cost.”
