The murders of his family in rural Colombia could have inspired a young Jesús to pick up a gun; instead, he bought a camera.
Jesús Abad Colorado dedicated the next 25 years to documenting Colombia’s war.
In The Witness, Jesús goes in search of the subjects of his most iconic photographs to explore what it means to forgive the horrors of the past.
Following preview screenings at Curzon UK and the Colombian Film Festival, The Witness launches internationally on NETFLIX on 28th June 2019.
+Peace and the Alliance for Peacebuilding are honored to serve as social impact partners for the film, helping show the world the power of peacebuilding and mobilize public support for Colombian peacebuilders’ fight to protect their peace process.
