The Colors of the Mountain

June 12, 2014 - 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM

The CNY-Cajibio Sister Community will be screening The Colors of the Mountain, a film about the struggle of Campesin@s whose daily lives are affected by armed military and guerrilla rebels.

Join us to help raise funds for the 10th Anniversary delegation of the CNY-Cajibio Sister Community and the Movimiento Campesino de Cajibío (Small Farmers Movement) at this event! We will also be sharing our stories about why we are going on the delegation and how our community can build solidarity abroad. Donations will be gratefully accepted.

The Colors of the Mountain:
Young Manuel lives with his hard-working farmer parents in the remote, mountainous region of the Colombian countryside. While the adults in their lives try to avoid both the armed military and the guerrilla rebels fighting each other in the area, Manuel and his friend Julian are obsessed with playing soccer any chance they get. Shortly after his birthday, the new ball Manuel received as a gift gets kicked off to a minefield, and he, Julian and their albino friend Poca Luz will do everything in their power to recover their prized belonging, an essential part of their everyday lives and dreams.
