[2] ... in conversation with Jaap van't Kruis & Marialejandra Moreno on Colombia

In our second episode we speak with Dutch director Jaap van’t Kruis who is living in Bogota & Marialejandra Moreno Mantilla, a Colombian human rights expert and lawyer based in Nürnberg.

We discuss the current situation in Colombia and in particular the impacts of corona on human rights. We learn about the dangerous situation of human rights defenders and social leaders; what impact corona has on the reconciliation process; and why the lockdown is in particular depriving marginalized groups of their livelihood.

At the Human Rights Film Festival Berlin 2019 we showed Jaap van’t Kruis very insightful documentary “Unpaved Road to Peace” - a portrait of the fragile reconciliation in Colombia.
