Oxford-Colombia Special Series

Documentary: Mujeres al frente (Women to the front)

Lula Gómez will discuss her documentary Mujeres al frente (Women to the front), which will then be projected.  The documentary (in Spanish with English subtitles) is based on the testimony of seven Colombian women who reject a society that kills them.  Through their lives, the main characters create a new narrative and a new reality that is no longer defined by violence. Gómez skillfully presents these seven independent stories that highlight the importance of dialogue and consensus.
