Zpět do Kolumbie: Zajímavý doku!
ABC Colombia (2007)
Along the Don Diego river, one of the many rivers that descend from the Sierra Nevada of Santa Marta, there is a small building of white cement, on whose walls the children have drawn the flora and fauna of the region. This is the school class of the children of the 'campesinos' of the area. A single elementary class that gathers 25 children between 5 and 15 years old, the age at which school ends around here.
Many at that age have already begun to work as 'raspachines' - coca-leaf pickers. Others have joined the paramilitary and are patrolling the mountains - in which there are enormous stretches of coca plantation - to prevent infiltration by guerrillas or the army. The documentary follows the young protagonists in this problematic setting through an entire school year, exploring some of the realities that nurture and perpetuate the violence in Colombia.
