Colombia with Simon Reeve

  • Documentary and factual
  • 2017
  • Ruth Mayer

Summary

Simon Reeve visits Colombia in the year of the pacification, at least on paper, between the government, 'aided' by right-wing death squads, and the Marxist FARC guerrilla, which was turning into an armed super-drug cartel and champion of ransom kidnappings. He speaks with people about the horror that hopefully nears its end and the prospects if both sides disarm, stressing the need of socio-economic reform, especially alternatives for the coca plant farming and land redistribution. He also shows the vibrant country, rich in natural resources and budding tourism potential, so far crippled by its persisting, yet dated crime records image.
