Movie "Strangers to Peace", Colleen Alena O'Brien (University of Saarland)

19th July 2023, 5 p.m., Iwalewahaus

In this last session, we will present the documentary "Strangers to Peace", and have a Q&A with the film's producer Dr. Colleen Alena O'Brien, who will be visiting us from Berlin.


Three former child soldiers face retribution, anxiety, and danger as they attempt to rebuild their lives after leaving the FARC guerrilla army and the bloody Colombian conflict. Strangers to Peace intimately captures the personal stories of Dayana, the market vendor navigating her new identity as a trans woman; Ricardo, the young father secretly clinging to his communist ideology; and Alexandra, the indigenous child soldier, who was forced to leave her family behind in the Amazon. Their stories are told through the lens of filmmaker Laura Àngel, who herself was a victim of FARC violence.


Closing Ceremony at 7 p.m.

We cordially invite you to stay for a glass of wine, some chats and a relaxed get-together to bring the colloquium and the summer term to a close.
